Founded in 2012, the Center for Computational, Evolutionary and Human Genomics (CEHG) fosters interdisciplinary research and enables collaborations between Stanford University's School of Humanities and Sciences and School of Medicine. Home to 32 faculty members and over 200 postdoctoral scholars and graduate students, the Center supports and showcases the cutting edge scientific research conducted in member labs.
CEHG and the University Libraries are hosting a two-day Software Carpentry workshop for biology graduate students and postdocs who want to learn core computing skills for getting more done in less time and who are familiar with the command line interface and basic programming concepts (like loops and functions). Short tutorials will alternate with practical exercises, and all instruction will be done via live coding. Workshops are currently fully enrolled with 16 out of 20 registrants from CEHG-affiliated labs. For more information, open the Word doc below.
