 May meeting

We have another great line-up.
Dr. Lavallée will be coming from Ottawa to present to us his lab’s research. Jean Monlong will be explaining to us the ins and outs of R Markdown. To learn more about Dr. Lavallée’s research, consult his lab’s website, where he discusses his exciting research applying computational methods, including machine learning, to proteomics data. https://med.uottawa.ca/bmi/people/lavallee-adam-mathieu

We have more plans for the next months, including a hackathon, and getting our t-shirts for the summer. Only speakers get t-shirts, so if you want one, volunteer to give a talk.

Wednesday, May 9th, Room André-Barbeau, IRCM

Agenda
17:00 – 17:05 Introduction and community announcements
17:05 – 17:45 Functional 5′ UTR Motif Discovery with LESMoN: Local Enrichment of Sequence Motifs in Biological Networks, Dr. Lavallée
17:45 -18:05 Sandwichs and refreshments
18:05 -18:30 Introduction to R Markdown, Jean Monlong

“I will present the Markdown syntax and how to combine it with the R Markdown package to produce dynamic reproducible reports. R Markdown makes an analysis workflow much more pleasant and saves a lot of time. It’s great for many applications: personal lab notes, data exploration, sharing results with collaborator/supervisor, publishing code with a manuscript.
I’ll show how to convert a simple document with R code into HTML reports, PDF slides and other formats. I’ll also share a few tricks that made my experience easier.”
