BIOF 017 | Introductory R Boot Camp


In this workshop, learners will learn the basics of how to use R to wrangle data, create visualizations, and conduct exploratory analyses. The workshop will use the popular “tidyverse” suite of packages and will also teach learners the concept of tidy data and how it facilitates analysis. The workshop will include three two-hour sessions with [....]

BIOF 050 – Introduction to Deep Learning


This workshop will first cover the theory and proper applications of various neural networks (multilayer perceptrons, convolutional neural networks, long-short term memory models, autoencoders, etc.). Powerful deep learning packages, such as Pytorch and Keras, will be introduced. Proper coding techniques will be shown through examples and practiced through exercises that will be completed in the [....]

TECH 071 | Project Management Essentials


This objective of this course is to impart the fundamental knowledge and practices required to execute a project effectively. The course leverages critical concepts and processes as defined in the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide, which is an ANSI standard. Practical “best practices” and guides are also incorporated. At the end [....]

BIOF 099 | Advanced Statistical Analysis using R


Complex data require complex statistical analyses. Data that are large, messy, multi-dimensional, and in unconventional formats often require advanced data science approaches for proper rigorous analysis. This workshop will expand on participants' prior knowledge of basic R programming and statistics to teach advanced analyses, including statistical modeling, empirical statistical analyses, and basic machine learning. In [....]

STAT 011 | Conducting a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis in Biomedical Research


We live in times of evidence-based medicine, where we use the best evidence available to make decisions about patient care and healthcare interventions at population level. But what is the best evidence available? LEARNING OBJECTIVES In this hands-on two-day online workshop, we will take participants through all the steps of conducting a systematic review and [....]

NCCOE Virtual Workshop on the Cybersecurity of Genomic Data

Virtual Event

Genomic data are central to basic science research, pharmaceutical drug and vaccine development, disease diagnosis and prediction, ancestry tracing, and forensic investigations. These applications require information fidelity and appropriate availability as bad actors may wish to misuse genomic data to invade privacy, gain an unfair competitive advantage, or inflict harm with devastating impacts on individuals, [....]
