  • Each module focuses on a different aspect of Big Data such as organizing and processing data for statistical analysis, visualizing data, or the challenges surrounding reproducible research.

  • Enroll in multiple modules to create an experience that best suits your interests.

Participant Comments

  • "This has been a transformative experience for me. Over the course of a few days, machine learning went from a fuzzy concept to something that I've already started applying to my own work in pediatric cancer and immunotherapy."
  • "The expert faculty did a wonderful job of presenting challenging and complex material with tools (such as R markdown) that allowed students of all different levels to learn and gain exposure to a rich set of tools and concepts."
  • "I gained skills that I can directly apply to my research. The labs and code were super helpful, and will aid me in my research projects."
