EMBL Course: Computing Skills For Reproducible Research: Software Carpentry

16 October 2019 - 18 October 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This workshop provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing.
