This workshop is organized by the German National Research Data Infrastructure Initiative Neuroscience (NFDI-Neuro). The initiative is community driven and comprises around 50 contributing national partners and collaborators. NFDI-Neuro partners with EBRAINS AISB, the coordinating entity of the EU Human Brain Project and the EBRAINS infrastructure. We will introduce common methods that enable digital reproducible neuroscience.
This course consists of two workshops which focus on the need for reproducibility in science, particularly under the umbrella roadmap of FAIR scienctific principles. The tutorials also provide an introduction to some of the most commonly used open-source scientific tools, including Git, GitHub, Google Colab, Binder, Docker, and the programming languages Python and R.
This course includes both lectures and tutorials around the management and analysis of genomic data in clinical research and care. Participants are led through the basics of genome-wide association studies (GWAS), genotypes, and polygenic risk scores, as well as novel concepts and tools for more sophisticated consideration of population stratification in GWAS.
This course, consisting of one lecture and two workshops, is presented by the Computational Genomics Lab at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and University of Toronto. The lecture deals with single-cell and bulk level transciptomics, while the two hands-on workshops introduce users to transcriptomic data types (e.g., RNAseq) and how to perform analyses in specific use cases (e.g., cellular changes in major depression).
As research methods and experimental technologies become ever more sophisticated, the amount of health-related data per individual which has become accessible is vast, giving rise to a corresponding need for cross-domain data integration, whole-person modelling, and improved precision medicine. This course provides lessons describing state of the art methods and repositories, as well as a tutorial on computational methods for data integration.
This course consists of several lightning talks from the second day of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. Covering a wide range of topics, these brief talks provide snapshots of various neuroinformatic efforts such as brain-computer interface standards, dealing with multimodal animal MRI datasets, distributed data management, and several more.
This course consists of a three-part session from the second day of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023. The lessons describe various on-going efforts within the fields of neuroinformatics and clinical neuroscience to adjust to the increasingly vast volumes of brain data being collected and stored.
This course contains videos, lectures, and hands-on tutorials as part of INCF's Neuroinformatics Assembly 2023 workshop on developing robust and reproducible research workflows to foster greater collaborative efforts in neuroscience.
The workshop will include interactive seminars given by selected experts in the field covering all aspects of (FAIR) small animal MRI data acquisition, analysis, and sharing. The seminars will be followed by hands-on training where participants will perform use case scenarios using software established by the organizers. This will include an introduction to the basics of using command line interfaces, Python installation, working with Docker/Singularity containers, Datalad/Git, and BIDS.
This workshop delves into the need for, structure of, tools for, and use of hierarchical event descriptor (HED) annotation to prepare neuroimaging time series data for storing, sharing, and advanced analysis. HED are a controlled vocabulary of terms describing events in a machine-actionable form so that algorithms can use the information without manual recoding.
