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.
We will cover Intro to genomics files, Working in the Shell, and . 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.
Who: The course is aimed at upper level undergraduate students, early graduate students, and others with no computational genomics experiance.

To participate in a Data Carpentry workshop, you will need working copies of the described software.Windows users: Install Gitbash before arriving at the workshop. (or at least download the installers) before the start of your workshop.
Mac and Linux users: No additional software is requiredParticipants should bring and use their own laptops to insure the proper setup of tools for an efficient workflow once you leave the workshop.
