This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:20:58

Speaker: : Erin Dickie and Sejal Patel

This lesson describes the fundamentals of genomics, from central dogma to design and implementation of GWAS, to the computation, analysis, and interpretation of polygenic risk scores.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:28:16

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This is a hands-on tutorial on PLINK, the open source whole genome association analysis toolset. The aims of this tutorial are to teach users how to perform basic quality control on genetic datasets, as well as to identify and understand GWAS summary statistics.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:27:18

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This is a tutorial on using the open-source software PRSice to calculate a set of polygenic risk scores (PRS) for a study sample. Users will also learn how to read PRS into R, visualize distributions, and perform basic association analyses.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:53:34

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This lesson contains the slides (pptx) of a lecture discussing the necessary concepts and tools for taking into account population stratification and admixture in the context of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The free-access software Tractor and its advantages in GWAS are also discussed.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration:

Speaker: : Dan Felsky

This lesson is an overview of transcriptomics, from fundamental concepts of the central dogma and RNA sequencing at the single-cell level, to how genetic expression underlies diversity in cell phenotypes.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Shreejoy Tripathy

This is a tutorial introducing participants to the basics of RNA-sequencing data and how to analyze its features using Seurat.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:19:17

Speaker: : Sonny Chen

This tutorial demonstrates how to perform cell-type deconvolution in order to estimate how proportions of cell-types in the brain change in response to various conditions. While these techniques may be useful in addressing a wide range of scientific questions, this tutorial will focus on the cellular changes associated with major depression (MDD).

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Duration: 1:15:14

Speaker: : Keon Arbabi

Course:
