About the event

This hands-on workshop teaches fundamental data skills needed for anyone who deals with data and datasets. You will learn basic concepts, skills, and tools for working more effectively with data. The aim is to get researchers doing more in less time, and with less pain!

We will cover: 

  • data organisation in spreadsheets
  • data cleaning
  • SQL (Structured Query Language)
  • the command line
  • R for data analysis
  • visualisation using biological examples

By the end of the workshop, learners should be able to more effectively manage and analyse data and apply the tools and approaches directly to their ongoing research.

This four-day workshop will be delivered in person at Earlham Institute. 

Who is this training for?
Researchers in the life science and computational science disciplines. We particularly encourage PhD students and postdoctoral scientists to attend, but the course is open to everyone, at any stage of their career. 

The course is aimed at complete beginners; trainees are expected to have no prior knowledge of the tools or computational experience before attending. However, we will cover a lot of material and the training is quite fast-paced, so be prepared to fully immerse yourself in the world of data management and analysis!
