Monthly user meeting at SciNet with pizza, a techtalk and user discussion:"Bayesian Model-Based Clustering Approaches for Discrete-Valued Gene Expression Data"by Anjali Silva.Abstract: Unsupervised classification or clustering uses no a priori knowledge of the labels of the observations in the process of categorizing data. This presentation focuses on research surrounding machine learning of discrete-valued gene expression datasets using clustering, with the aim of identifying gene co-expression networks. Specifically, a number of topics surrounding the use of mixture models and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods for clustering of discrete data from high-throughput transcriptome sequencing technologies will be presented. After outlining current challenges and gaps in research with respect to clustering approaches, several mixture model-based clustering methods will be presented. Significance, innovation, limitations and a number of future directions stemming from this research will be discussed. Location: SciNet Teaching Room MaRS 1140

This six-week class will introduce neural network programming concepts, theory and techniques. The class material will begin at an introductory level, intended for those with no experience with neural networks, eventually covering intermediate-to-advanced concepts. The programming language will be Python 3.7; experience with Python programming will be assumed. The Keras neural network framework will be used for neural network programming; no experience with Keras will be expected. Location: SciNet Teaching Room MaRS 1140

This half-day session offers a brief introduction to R, with a focus on data analysis and statistics. We will discuss and introduce the following topics: the R interface, primitive data types, lists, vectors, matrices, and data frames - a crucial data type in data analysis and a trademark in the R language. Advanced topics to be covered include: basics statistics and function creation; *apply family functions; and basics of scripting. Time depending we may cover and discuss some data management strategies (ie. saving results, workspaces and installing packages) and basic plotting. -- Prerequisite: some programming experience in another programming language.

This 3 hours course will focus of data cleaning and statistical analysis of large scale genetic data using PLINK and R softwares. We will use SciNet to run the PLINK analytical workflow to perform markers and individuals quality control, including population stratification and ancestry followed by association analysis between genetic variation and trait of interest. R-software (basic R plotting and ggplot package) will be use to visualize the results. -- Prerequisite: basic Linux command line skills and R Location: McLennan Physical Labs - MP103
