Week 3 – NGS2015

Week 3 of NGS 2015 comes to a close. Discussion on what attendees and instructors have gained from this week: most important things learned, theory/big picture. Teaching and pedagogy especially. We went through 10 different workflows in 1 week! Analyzed complex data sets. This is a very new field. These methods are in development. Instructors are at the top of their fields, sharing methods for data analysis. Always something new to learn. Impossible to be expert in everything. But, surrounding ourselves with a community of people who are experts, learning from everyone. Reproducibility, automating workflows that lead to figure generation are important.

Cool teaching tools learned:

Google pole, live coding and Google docs xls graph updated with input from students Lex Nederbragt’s assembly lesson.
Data wrangling from Tiffany Timbers’ lesson on GWAS

Thank you! (power pose)
