UBI 2016

The Bioinformatics Unit at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência offers a broad range of support. See the Rules of Engagement to know how to request our services.

You can also browse through the resources we provide, such as the local Galaxy server, and learn about our outreach activities, most notably the Bioinformatics at School project.

If you have any questions, please take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions section, and if the answer is not there, contact us.

Functional Enrichment Analysis using Galaxy@IGC

For the last Galaxy session before the summer break, we have a bioinformatics classic: Functional Enrichment analysis.

Starting with a list of your favourite genes, a common procedure is to find out if your list is enriched in genes associated to particular functional categories (e.g. transcription; adaptive immunity, cellular signalling, melanine synthesis, etc...).

Variant Detection with NGS using Galaxy@IGC

This week the UBI will provide an introductory thematic session on Variant detection analysis with NGS data using the local Galaxy installation.

Patricia Santos will showcase two workflows for variant detection, one for eukaryotic genomes (namely Human) and another for bacteria.

All of this using the simple interface of our local Galaxy server at http://galaxy.igc.gulbenkian.pt

The session will take place next Wednesday 17, at 16h in Theano.

Tutorial: Introduction to RNA-Seq data analysis using Galaxy@IGC

This week the UBI will provide an introductory thematic session on RNA-Seq data analysis using the local Galaxy installation. In this session we will cover the basics of differential expression analysis using RNA-Seq data, going through real analysis examples. All of this using the simple interface of our local Galaxy server at http://galaxy.igc.gulbenkian.pt The session will take place next Wednesday 27, at 16h in Theano. Please add your name if you want to come.

Tutorial: From NGS Reads to Alignments using Galaxy@IGC

In this session we will look at how to go from NGS reads (fastq files) to alignments. Bring your questions from last session and move to the next step in NGS data analysis. All of this using the simple interface of our local Galaxy server at  http://galaxy.igc.gulbenkian.pt The session will take place next Wednesday 13, at 16h in Theano.

Tutorial: Introduction to NGS data analysis using Galaxy@IGC

This week the UBI will provide an introductory thematic session on NGS data analysis using the local Galaxy installation.

In this session we will cover the basics of NGS data analysis: we will look at how NGS data look like (the fastq format), how to assess data quality, do some basic preprocessing to prepare it for subsequent analysis, and see some examples of data analysis that will be covered in more detail in future sessions.
