Data Carpentry Genomics Workshop #6
Data Carpentry workshops are for any researcher who has data they want to analyze , and no prior computational experience is required. This hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data.
The focus of this workshop will be on working with genomics data and data management and analysis for genomics research. We will cover connecting to and using cloud computing and the command line for sequence quality control and bioinformatics workflows. We will not be teaching any particular bioinformatics tools, but the foundational skills that will allow you to conduct any analysis and analyze the output of a genomics pipeline.
Participants should bring their laptops and plan to participate actively. By the end of the workshop learners should be able to more effectively manage and analyze data and be able to apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research.
Data Carpentry's aim is to teach researchers basic concepts, skills, and tools for working with data so that they can get more done in less time, and with less pain.
We meet in the staff conference room in building 18, across from the LCC auditorium on Thursday and Friday, April 14 and 15 from 9am to 5pm. Bring a laptop with IGV installed (https://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/). If your laptop operates on Windows, also install PuTTY (http://www.putty.org/).
