Who should attend? … Prior course participants have included faculty, post docs, grad students, staff, and industry researchers.

What are the prerequisites? … There are no prerequisites other than familiarity with general biological concepts and an enthusiasm for learning bioinformatics data analysis. Some familiarity with the command-line and R is desirable. However, we will dedicate time on the first day to bringing everyone up-to-speed to be able to run the commands needed during this workshop.

What do I need to bring? … You will need to have access to a computer with a good internet connection, a recent version of R, Rstudio, and Java installed, and an application that will allow you to ssh into a server (e.g. Bash for Windows, or Terminal for Apple). Computational exercises will be performed on a remote server. We can help with setup early on in the workshop. If your department does not allow you to install software on your computer, please contact us ahead of time.

Can I bring my own data? … We will provide experimental datasets for use during the workshop, as this helps to keep the workshop moving. There will be time, however, to discuss your own datasets and how you might work with them outside of the workshop.

Where is the workshop? … It will be held entirely online, and will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm on the dates indicated.

How do I apply? … All registration is “first-come, first-served.” There is no application process. Sign up as soon as possible to ensure your place in the workshop.
