Tutorial on collaborating with Git and GitHub. This tutorial was part of the 2019 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work with neuronal data using MATLAB, including actional potentials and spike counts, orientation tuing curves in visual cortex, and spatial maps of firing rates.
This lesson instructs users on how to import electrophysiological neural data into MATLAB, as well as how to convert spikes to a data matrix.
In this lesson, users will learn how to appropriately sort and bin neural spikes, allowing for the generation of a common and powerful visualization tool in neuroscience, the histogram.
Followers of this lesson will learn how to compute, visualize and quantify the tuning curves of individual neurons.
This lesson demonstrates how to programmatically generate a spatial map of neuronal spike counts using MATLAB.
In this lesson, users are shown how to create a spatial map of neuronal orientation tuning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a tutorial introducing participants to the basics of RNA-sequencing data and how to analyze its features using Seurat.
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).
Similarity Network Fusion (SNF) is a computational method for data integration across various kinds of measurements, aimed at taking advantage of the common as well as complementary information in different data types. This workshop walks participants through running SNF on EEG and genomic data using RStudio.
