Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
+ Google Map

R (www.r-project.org) is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. First, this workshop introduces basic concepts, syntax, and usage in R programming, statistical analysis, and visualization techniques. We will conduct hands-on tutorials throughout the session, giving attendees a chance to see R in action. This workshop is geared toward those with little or no prior experience with R. Next, this workshop covers an introduction to Bioconductor (www.bioconductor.org), which provides tools for the analysis of high throughput genomic data.…

W14: Intro to Modern Statistics

January 28 @ 1:30 pm - January 30 @ 3:30 pm
529 Boyer Hall, 611 Charles E Young Dr E,
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
+ Google Map

Through this seminar, attendees will walk away knowing when and how to run modern versions of traditional statistical analysis. These tests and the underlying bioinformatical lesson about resampling will be of use to most scientific disciplines. The course makes no assumptions about familiarity with traditional statistics – we will simply go through relatable experimental examples and ask how to test various hypotheses, introducing the relevant methods along the way. There will be homework assignments each night to solidify the concepts…

Imaging datasets are becoming easier to acquire and more difficult to analyze. This workshop will provide an introduction to some of the computational tools available for manipulating images and extracting quantitative information from them. The main focus of this workshop will be on cellular imaging however much of the techniques are broadly applicable to other data types. We will cover image conversion and handling in python, different methods for normalizing, aligning and segmenting images and finally work on applying these…

W20: Single-Cell RNA-Seq Analysis

February 11 @ 1:30 pm - February 13 @ 4:30 pm
529 Boyer Hall, 611 Charles E Young Dr E,
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
+ Google Map

This workshop aims to provide an entry-level introduction to the basic concepts and data analysis tools for single-cell RNA-seq techniques. It will help the attenders obtain a better idea of the important applications of scRNA-seq, the important considerations in designing a scRNA-seq experiment, the major differences between popular technical platforms, and the main steps in preliminary data analysis. It can serve as a starting point to conceive a scRNA-seq study or to analyze a scRNA-seq dataset.

Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
+ Google Map

RNA-seq I aims to provide an introduction and the basics tools to process raw RNA-seq data on a cluster machine (Hoffman2). The workshop can serve also as a starting point to develop a gene expression project. This workshop is divided in three days that will cover major steps of processing RNA-seq. To facilitate learning, the workshop will be centered on hands-on tutorial that will guide students in processing the data from raw reads through read counts using a real case…

W4: Galaxy for NGS Data Analysis

March 4 @ 10:00 am - March 5 @ 12:00 pm
529 Boyer Hall, 611 Charles E Young Dr E,
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States
+ Google Map

Galaxy (https://usegalaxy.org/) is a web-based infrastructure for bioinformatics application. First, this workshop introduces participants to using Galaxy for analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing data. Next, this workshop covers the structure of Galaxy, data format and manipulation, obtaining and sharing data, and building and sharing workflows. We will use the tools installed on the UCLA galaxy to perform a few types of NGS analysis.
