The 5 day training program will include seminars, extensive hands-on data analyses, evening activities and collaborative curriculum development work. The 2018 Course will be offered in Late May, 2018. The application for the course will be released Dec. 1, 2017.
The purpose of the course is to offer training to professors from small colleges, regional universities, HBCU and INBRE institutions in big data-computational biology. The goal of the program is to enable professors to launch Big Data or Computational Biology courses at their home institutions. Professors will be trained, receive a curricular model and be offered the ongoing technical support required to teach undergraduate courses in Biomedical Big Data science.
The program is funded by the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative.
