Data Carpentry Workshop: Genomics Data

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 is on working with genomics data and data management and analysis for genomics research.

We will cover Intro, Data Processing, and Organization, Data Cleaning and Visualization in R – Intro to Linux , Using Linux to organize and process Genomics Data and Using Linux to Automate. 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.
