Bioinformatics Tools & Tricks: Hands-On Tutorial for Biologists
Do you want to learn how to analyze your data using free tools and web resources? Do you want to try machine learning, AI and predictive modelling? We will show you how to accomplish these and many other common analysis tasks within minutes, using popular free bioinformatics and statistical software.
Each hands-on tutorial will present a sequence of analysis steps: from choosing the right tools, to analyzing the data, to making publication-quality figures. We will pay particular attention to common pitfalls in using bioinformatics software and web resources.
No prior knowledge of computer programming, statistics or machine learning is required – all necessary concepts will be introduced during the tutorial.
