Session 1: Introduction to data reproducibility

speaker: Ana Victoria

In this session we will discuss the reproducibility crisis in science and we will go over materials that will help us make our research reproducible.

We will have a look at different online note-taking tools, we will learn how to use GitHub and Git for version control, and we will finish this session by going over helpful bioinformatics tools.

Session 2: Interactive coding on the ACI-ICS cluster

speaker: Alan Brown

This session will introduce Jupyter notebooks, the computing cluster at PSU and some ways to incorporate both for more organized coding.

session 3 TOP

Session 3: Workflow management by Snakemake

speaker: Jianyu Yang

In this session we will go through Snakemake, a popular workflow management tool. We will talk about what kind of features should be expected from a workflow, and how to realize them by Snakemake.

A toy example workflow will be built step by step during the presentation, and participants will also have the chance to work on small tasks by their own.
