The Monash Bioinformatics Platform want to help make introductory bioinformatic approaches part of the research landscape in Biomedicine. To do this, a foundation level of expertise amongst as many researchers as possible is an important step forward. The platform will then be available to facilitate this work as well as develop more advanced bioinformatic projects with our researchers.
We are running three consecutive workshops with a focus on enabling researchers to be able to analyse data in bioinformatics using the R programming language.
The workshop will be taught in a similar style to Software Carpentry workshops. Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.
For more information on what we teach and why, please see our paper "Best Practices for Scientific Computing".
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. Day 2 and 3 are intermediate courses and require Day 1, or knowledge of the R programming language.
Setup Requirements: BYO Laptop. No software installation required. Tools will be provided on the day.
Contact: Please mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will use this Etherpad for chatting, taking notes, and sharing URLs and bits of code.
