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.
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 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).
This is an in-depth guide on EEG signals and their interaction within brain microcircuits. Participants are also shown techniques and software for simulating, analyzing, and visualizing these signals.
This tutorial introduces pipelines and methods to compute brain connectomes from fMRI data. With corresponding code and repositories, participants can follow along and learn how to programmatically preprocess, curate, and analyze functional and structural brain data to produce connectivity matrices.
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 video will document the process of creating a pipeline rule for batch processing on brainlife.
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 tutorial provides instruction on how to simulate brain tumors with TVB (reproducing publication: Marinazzo et al. 2020 Neuroimage). This tutorial comprises a didactic video, jupyter notebooks, and full data set for the construction of virtual brains from patients and health controls.
The tutorial on modelling strokes in TVB includes a didactic video and jupyter notebooks (reproducing publication: Falcon et al. 2016 eNeuro).
This lesson provides an overview of Jupyter notebooks, Jupyter lab, and Binder, as well as their applications within the field of neuroimaging, particularly when it comes to the writing phase of your research.
This lesson introduces population models and the phase plane, and is part of the The Virtual Brain (TVB) Node 10 Series, a 4-day workshop dedicated to learning about the full brain simulation platform TVB, as well as brain imaging, brain simulation, personalised brain models, and TVB use cases.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to run a typical TVB simulation.
This lesson introduces TVB-multi-scale extensions and other TVB tools which facilitate modeling and analyses of multi-scale data.
This tutorial introduces The Virtual Mouse Brain (TVMB), walking users through the necessary steps for performing simulation operations on animal brain data.
