- 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.
- The two-and-a-half day module format includes formal lectures, computing labs, and hands-on case studies.
- Instructors are world-class faculty with expertise in all aspects of Biological Big Data.
- Participants are encouraged to enroll in multiple modules to create an experience that best suits their needs. Individuals attending the institute will receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.
SISBID is supported by the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), funded by the NIH Big Data to Knowledge Initiative, under Award Number 5R25EB020380.
