ELIXIR-IIB, in collaboration with the National Research Council Italy, is pleased to announce the upcoming 

“Workshop on Docker and Reproducibility, a satellite event held jointly with the BITS Annual Meeting 2018"

25-26 June 2018

University of Turin
Molecular Biotechnology Center
Via Nizza, 52 - 10126 Torino (Italy)


COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Docker is a container framework for Linux that allows a developer to make easier the creation, deployment, and execution of applications by using containers. Recently it is becoming a promising approach to computational biology research reproducibility by: 

• Saving time and expenses on human and computational resources allocated to already performed analysis;
• Boosting communication between computational biologists working on similar topics;
• Enhancing transparency within the community;
• Granting open access computational knowledge to the community.

During the workshop the participants will learn the core concepts of docker and how to easily embed bioinformatic pipelines/workflows into a docker container.

ELIXIR-IIB, in collaboration with the National Research Council Italy, is pleased to announce the upcoming 

“Population Genomics: background and tools"

21-27 April 2018
09:00

Biblioteca 
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche 
Istituto di Genetica e Biofisica “Adriano Buzzati-Traverso” 
via Pietro Castellino 111 
80131 Napoli - IT 
www.igb.cnr.it

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Study methods in population genomics have been profoundly reshaped in the last few years thanks to the growing availability of complete genomic sequences at population level. The rapid and recent growth of data and methods calls for new approaches to become routine in evolutionary genomics laboratories. The objective of this Practical Course is to give an overview of state of the art methods in population genomics combining lecturing from outstanding experienced population geneticists and software developers. All conceptual innovation will be presented in lectures and applied in practice both individually and in group work.

ELIXIR-IIB, in collaboration with the National Research Council Italy, is pleased to announce the upcoming 

“Software Carpentry workshop"

22-23 February 2018
09:00

University of Milano Bicocca
Via Bicocca degli Arcimboldi, 8 
20126 Milano

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. In particular, in this workshop we will cover the Unix Shell, programming in Python and version control with Git.

ELIXIR-IIB, in collaboration with the National Research Council Italy, is pleased to announce the upcoming training course on

“Linux shell scripting for high-throughput biological data processing on supercomputers"

16-17 January 2018
09:00

CINECA

Via dei Tizii 6b
00185 Roma, Italy

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Biological big data increasingly require supercomputers for their processing and analysis. Running high-throughput (HTP) bioinformatics data pipelines on supercomputing machines requires advanced Linux shell command line and scripting skills. In this two-day course, we will introduce the Linux shell and, on day one, we will show how to navigate and work with files and directories, how to combine commands to do new things, how to perform the same actions on many different files, how to filter and selectively extract data from tables, and how to find objects in files. Moreover, we will show how to connect to a remote supercomputer and how to utilise a supercomputing environment to analyse big amount of biological data, run simple shell scripts and bioinformatics pipelines. Day 2 will be wholly practical.
