This 1.5-day workshop will include a short introduction to next-generation sequencing theory and an introduction to Galaxy. The hands-on component of the workshop will cover the concepts of de novo assembly and initial annotation of a genome from short-read NGS data.
Exploring and predicting using linear regression in R (6 June 2018)
Wed, 06/06/2018 - 09:00 to 17:00
This workshop is relevant to biologists, researchers and generally any student who wishes to expand their skills into regression methods and considering using regression approaches in their research. The workshop is relevant for all disciplines, although examples and exercises will focus on biological datasets. Prior knowledge of R is required (QFAB's Introduction to R workshop is strongly recommended) as the basics of R will not be covered. Participants are expected to have a basic familiarity with the concepts of descriptive statistics and elementary statistical hypothesis testing. Participants must bring their own laptops with wireless network capability. Register before the 23rd May 2018 and get 50% discount with the code MemberEarlyBird (for QFAB members only).
- Understand the principles of linear regression methods
