Event Details

The focus of this two-day workshop is on working with genomics data and data management and analysis for genomics research. It covers data management and analysis for genomics research including: best practices for organization of bioinformatics projects and data, use of command line utilities, use of command line tools to analyze sequence quality and perform variant calling, and connecting to and using cloud computing.

Everyone is welcome, and this will be especially useful to graduate students, postdocs, and researchers who have not begun to leverage the power of effective computing for reproducible research and data management.

Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring their own laptops to work on—if you require one on loan, please let us know ahead of time and we'll see if we can help locate one.

This two-day workshop is an example-driven tutorial on basic computing skills, hosted by HPCBio, Technology Services, Deloitte Center for Business Analytics, and Computational Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.

We especially encourage members of a course or research group to sign up together to reinforce good habits. Ask your advisor (if you are a research assistant) about development funds from research grants.
