Big Data in Biology Summer School

  • Published 
      Dear colleagues, 

      The Center for Biomedical Research Support (CBRS) offers six hands-on courses that span introductions to biocomputing, Python programming, and high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing analysis. These courses offer unique opportunities to gain and polish skills for biological data analysis across a wide spectrum of topics. 

      Courses last from 4 to 5 days. Students can take multiple courses and build up data analysis skills from week to week. Most classes will be offered in hybrid mode, while some are in-person only. 

      UT Austin students, faculty, and staff receive a great discount off the regular course fee. 

      We will cover the following topics: 
      May 28 - May 31 Introduction to R for Biologists 
      June 3 - June 7 Introduction to Core NGS Concepts and Tools 
      June 3 - June 7 Introduction to Biocomputing: from files to functions to plots 
      June 10 - June 14 Introduction to Python 
      June 10 - June 14 Introduction to RNA-Seq 
      June 17 - June 21 (no class on June 19) Principles of Machine Learning for Bioinformatics
