The recent attention to the challenges of reproducibility is new, but the problem itself is as old as science. Fortunately, over the past decade, a range of tools and resources have been created to help scientists communicate more easily and clearly, helping to make our work easier to build on, for ourselves and other researchers.
This workshop is an introduction to Amazon cloud Computing and UNIX basics. The workshop will help you to get setup and build windows or unix computer on Amazon cloud computing. Attendees will be exposed to hands‐on experience and by the end of the course one should be able to confidently use the command line interface on Unix system. They should be able also be to navigate around the Unix file system from the command line and use a number of basic Unix commands.
Affymetrix and Illumina microarray data analysis using R/Bioconductor
The course is a general introduction to Microarrays and the use of R/Bioconductor to carry out microarray data analysis. Following introduction the workshop starts with hands‐on exercise on how to install R and Bioconductor GUI packages. The course is mainly based on the use of Bioconductor open source packages for analyzing single channel and two channel data sets. Only basic R coding will be introduced since most the analysis are performed using OneChannelGUI, a graphical interface to Bioconductor tools...

Growth of the open science movement has drawn significant attention to data sharing and availability across the scientific community. However, many researchers are encountering both technical (lack of resources and tools) and cultural (sensitive data, uncomfortable sharing) difficulties in the application of this exciting new approach.
In this session we will hear from four professionals on their work to bring new research...
The NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education (OITE) posts video recordings of their events. These cover a variety of topics related to career and professional development - from mentoring to scientific communication to career exploration and the job search.
Market research helps you learn about your customers (patients, doctors, hospitals), your competitors, and potential barriers to entry. This research is necessary to reduce real and perceived business risks associated with your invention, helps uncover new trends or problems in the current market, and identifies opportunities for revenue.
This weekly study group is for students & postdocs who would like to practice their oral presentation skills. It is great for practicing speech delivery for classes, conferences, or interview presentations. Practice with us! Impress your audience!
We will use a lecture room in the Countway Library, and students may practice any oral presentations they want to share. We'll have access to a computer, lectern, and projector. This is a perfect way to improve your presentation skills and build confidence.
Feel free to join us whenever you would like to...
Science talk is a non profit organization which was the brainchild of a small group of science communication professionals who saw a need to gather others and help elevate science in the region. The purpose of the organization was to bring together individuals passionate about science and share ideas about how science should be best communicated.
