Thank You Journal Club

Thanks so much for the thoughtful discussion about the Data Science for Democracy paper at the journal club last week.   I’m incorporating your feedback into the paper and I believe it has improved the quality of the paper and its content.  Thanks so much for the thoughtful insights and discussion!  Submitting it in a couple weeks to the conference.  Looking forward to the next JC!

Genomic Data Science courses from John’s Hopkins University on Coursera

Below are are some of the online courses our members have taken as part of the Genomic Data Science series available from John’s Hopkins University on Coursera.

Introduction to Genomic Technologies

From Coursera website: This course introduces you to the basic biology of modern genomics and the experimental tools that we use to measure it. We’ll introduce the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology and cover how next-generation sequencing can be used to measure DNA, RNA, and epigenetic patterns.

Command Line Tools For Genomic Data Science

From Coursera website: Introduces the commands that you need to manage and analyze directories, files, and large sets of genomic data.

Python For Genomic Data Science

From Coursera website: This class provides an introduction to the Python programming language and the iPython notebook.

Online Courses Discussion

Many Wet Lab members find online courses to be a useful way to expand their skills and stay up-to-date on latest scientific advances. Below is a list of courses that members are currently enrolled in or have taken in the past.

Please join our Slack channel to connect with other Wet Lab members who are involved in online course or ask questions about courses they have taken in the past.

Journal Club

Scientific inquiry, ideas and design are fueled by engaged and informed dialogue and debate. The Wet Lab hosts monthly Journal Club meetings to foster intellectual camaraderie between our members, to keep up to date with the latest discoveries, and/or to discuss a specified topic of interest.

Each Journal Club will have a presenter who will choose the topic of discussion, provide any materials pertaining to the topic, and lead the discussion.

All participants must come prepared to debate, discuss and synthesize new ideas, as we hang out in a coffee house or a brewery.

Come join us! Before you know it, you will be looking forward to attending this monthly meetings as it creeps into your social calendar.

Please check our Journal Club Events page to keep up to date with our meetings.
