This is the third session of a 3 session series.

The goal of this one-day, three-part tutorial is to teach participants the fundamental data management and analysis skills and needed to conduct genomics research including: best practices for organization of bioinformatics projects and data as well as use of command line utilities for managing large volumes of genomic data. This tutorial is derived from the Data Carpentry Genomics Workshop, focused on the organization and intro to command line lessons. The tutorial uses active learning and hands-on practice to teach participants the skills and perspectives needed to work effectively with genomic data. 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.
The tutorial assumes no prior experience with the tools covered. However, learners are expected to have some familiarity with biological concepts, including nucleotide abbreviations. Participants should bring their laptops and plan to participate actively.

Executive Director, The Carpentries
Dr. Teal is the Executive Director of The Carpentries and a co-founder of Data Carpentry. After completing her PhD in Computation and Neural Systems at California Institute of Technology, her work as an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow focused on bioinformatics approaches to metagenomics and microbial community analysis. Then as an Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University she continued this work and developed training in bioinformatics and high performance computing. Through these training efforts, she saw that effective data skills are now foundational for research and the need for data training to scale along with data production. She co-founded Data Carpentry to develop and scale this training and Data Carpentry has now joined... Read More →
