The ITM’s parent organization the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program was created to enable biomedical research as a digital research enterprise. The program is pleased to announce the launch of a new entry-level online course in big data training for biomedical researchers. The course will begin in January 8, 2018 and end with a weekend workshop at Purdue University, a member of our national CTSA consortium, in West Lafayette, Indiana in April 2018.
The course includes a combination of short instructional videos, tool demonstrations, and problem-based activities. The goal of the course is to build familiarity and basic competency with established tools and resources to analyze and interpret genomic and genetic data. Applications will be considered from all qualified faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and post-prelim graduate students.
