Join us for two days of hands-on instruction in automating tasks with the BASH command line, accessing cloud computing resources, environment management using Conda and & Bioconda, and building reproducible workflows to save time and increase research quality!  Participants must register ahead of time and attend for both days.  

Register here!

Who is this for? GWU graduate students, faculty, and other researchers affiliated with GW or CTSI-CN. (Advanced undergraduates are also welcome) You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop. The workshop is free to any GW or CTSI-CN affiliated participant.  For more information see our workshop website.

What is it? Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Their mission is to provide researchers high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research.  This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools for Genomics research, including: cloud computing, BASH command line, environment management, data wrangling and processing, and more.  Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
