Registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is one week before the first day of the course. If you are unable to register before the deadline, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-496-7977 for space availability.
NIH Fellows or NIH community members being sponsored by their lab and awaiting payment authorization can tentatively hold a seat using the “Reserve A Seat” option. FAES must receive payment within 7 business days after reserving a seat or 3 business days before the start of the workshop, which ever comes first. If payment is not received in this time frame, your reservation will be canceled.
Workshops generally run from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
Computer programs are meant to perform repeated, monotonous, fast, reproducible tasks, handling any amount of data. Researchers often come across situations where existing programs don't suit their needs. In the era of BigData, without the ability to quickly put together a program that would solve their problem, researchers face a road block that is not efficiently solvable by a human.This training will walk through participants in writing programs that would help them solve their own problems.
Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for adequate learning experience. Examples include two laptops, one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, etc.
Participants will get a brief introduction to the programming concepts, followed by hands-on walkthrough for writing scripts using the Unix Shell Programming Language, R, Perl and Python. We will start from reading the data, processing it and all the way until saving the processed data.
- Participants will work in a friendly Linux GUI Desktop environment.
- Participants will get a copy of all the scripts used in the class.
- Participants will also receive a cookbook style manual for all the hands-on exercises.
Hands-on Skills/Tools taught
- Programming concepts using Microbit MakeCode
- Programming in Unix Shell Language
- Programming in R using RStudio
- Programming in Python using Jupyter
- Programming in Perl
- GitHub for version control
- Serverless computing
- Coding in the cloud
Who should attend
- Researchers, Clinicians, Students and academics who are aspiring to learn to write their own scripts/programs to solve their own problems.
- Scientists in program administration interested in learning the standard tools and techniques for biomedical programming.
Participants should be comfortable with basic computer skills.
Although no grades are given for courses, each participant will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) based on the number of contact hours. One CEU is equal to ten contact hours. Upon completion of the course each participant will receive a certificate, showing completion of the workshop and 2.8 CEUs.
