Want to boost your research with big data, but aren’t sure where to start? The ITM’s parent organization the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program can help!
BD2K is launching a new entry-level online course in big data training for biomedical researchers: Big Data Training for Translational Omics Research. Through a combination of videos, tool demonstrations, and problem-based activities, this program is designed to familiarize you with the resources available to analyze and interpret genomic and genetic data in your research. The training’s online format allows for self-paced learning so you can incorporate the program into your busy schedule. All qualified faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and post-prelim graduate students are encouraged to apply.
Submit your application by Nov. 1, 2017. The course will begin Jan. 8, 2018 and conclude with a weekend workshop at Purdue University, a member of our national CTSA consortium, in West Lafayette, Indiana in April 2018. Tuition is covered for all those accepted into the program, and travel scholarships are available for the final workshop.
