Data Science Training

The CCDL offers training to teach researchers the data science skills to examine their own data. The training is focused on techniques for gene expression analysis.

People who attend the training sessions come will away with a basic understanding of:

  • R programming language and the bioconductor package ecosystem.

  • Processing bulk and single-cell RNA-seq data from raw all the way to downstream analyses.

  • Downstream analyses methods like differential expression analyses, hierarchical clustering, and preparing publication-ready plots.
