Dan Voss from Florida State University is joining the Midwest Big Data Hub to present a two-day data carpentry workshop to demonstrate the uses of computerized data analysis in genomics. The workshop will be held Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept. 16, in Havener Center, the weekend before the S&T’s Research and Technology Development (RTD2018) conference. Register for the data carpentry workshop.

Participants will learn data management and analysis for genomics research, including best practices for data organization, how to use command line utilities to analyze research data, and how to use cloud computing in a research project. No prior experience with these topics is required but participants will be expected to understand basic concepts of biology, such as nucleotide abbreviations.

A laptop running Windows, OSX, or Linux will also be required; tablets, smartphones or Chromebooks are not sufficient to run the data analysis software. After the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to attend RTD2018 (registration required) and participate in a selection of workshops and break-out sessions that explore other aspects of data management. For more information, email IT research support services at itrss@mst.edu.
