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 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).
In this third and final hands-on tutorial from the Research Workflows for Collaborative Neuroscience workshop, you will learn about workflow orchestration using open source tools like DataJoint and Flyte.
This lecture describes how to build research workflows, including a demonstrate using DataJoint Elements to build data pipelines.
This lesson describes how DataLad allows you to track and mange both your data and analysis code, thereby facilitating reliable, reproducible, and shareable research.
This lesson gives an introduction to the central concepts of machine learning, and how they can be applied in Python using the scikit-learn package.
This lesson gives an overview of the Brainstorm package for analyzing extracellular electrophysiology, including preprocessing, spike sorting, trial alignment, and spectrotemporal decomposition.
This lesson provides an overview of the CaImAn package, as well as a demonstration of usage with NWB.
This lesson gives an overview of the SpikeInterface package, including demonstration of data loading, preprocessing, spike sorting, and comparison of spike sorters.
In this lesson, users will learn about the NWBWidgets package, including coverage of different data types, and information for building custom widgets within this framework.
This lecture gives an overview of how to prepare and preprocess neuroimaging (EEG/MEG) data for use in TVB.
This lecture covers the rationale for developing the DAQCORD, a framework for the design, documentation, and reporting of data curation methods in order to advance the scientific rigour, reproducibility, and analysis of data.
