PLINK v1.90
Submitted by - Thu, 06/23/2016 - 23:10

The focus of PLINK is purely on analysis of genotype/phenotype data. using PLINK, researchers can read data in a variety of formats, recode and reorder files, merge two or more files, extract subsets (SNPs or individuals), flip strand of SNPs and compress data in a binary file format. PLINK also enables researchers to perform summary statistics for quality control, detect population…

EMBO Practical Course on Analysis of High-Throughput Sequencing Data
Submitted by - Thu, 06/23/2016 - 22:54

Familiarity with the technology and biological use cases of high throughput sequencing is required, as is some experience with R/Bioconductor. The lectures give insight into how biological knowledge can be generated from RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq experiments and illustrate different ways of analysing such data. Practicals consist of computer exercises that will enable the participants to apply…

eBiomics: Good practices and specific methods for using bioinformatics resources
Submitted by - Thu, 06/23/2016 - 22:51

eBiomics is composed of several interconnected sections that can be accessed through different interactive activities. The 5 main sections of the website are: Resources ( a catalogue of selected databases and data analysis software that are briefly described and illustrated with examples); Conceptual flowcharts (a collection of clickable images picturing typical data analysis flows in…

EBI: Next Generation Sequencing Practical Course
Submitted by - Thu, 06/23/2016 - 22:49

This course is designed to impart the following objectives: understanding of some principles behind NGS; knowledge of the challenges created by NGS; knowledge of how to submit and retrieve NGS data to and from databases and understanding the uses of NGS data in whole genome assembly, gene expression analysis, genome annotation, gene regulation analysis and variation studies.

In determining differences between two or more biological conditions, LEfSe "emphasizes both statistical significance and biological relevance, allowing researchers to identify differentially abundant features that are also consistent with biologically meaningful categories (subclasses). LEfSe first robustly identifies features that are statistically different among biological classes. It then…

"HUMAnN is a pipeline for efficiently and accurately profiling the presence/absence and abundance of microbial pathways in a community from metagenomic or metatranscriptomic sequencing data." - from the website. This tool uses 'functional profiling' to ask "What are the microbes in my community-of-interest doing (or capable of doing)?"
