BBISR “Do it Yourself” Workshop Series: Cluster Analysis - Using Not Just Another Heatmap (NOJAH)


6/23/2017 1:00 PM - 6/23/2017 3:30 PM Add to Calendar

The Bioinformatics & Biostatistics Shared Resource (BBISR) at Winship Cancer Institute is hosting a series of ‘do it yourself’ workshops.  The intent of the workshops is to introduce biostatistics and bioinformatics application tools for cancer research, and to equip investigators with tools to enable efficient data mining that will help in formulating specific research questions to address with the BBISR team. Each workshop will provide detailed instruction on the use of the specific tool presented in addition to informing on the guiding principles behind it. All application tools developed by the BBISR can be accessed directly from the BBISR website.

Workshop participants must bring their own laptops to the workshop and are encouraged to bring their own data, in addition to the supplied data. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 10.
