Workshops

Workshops:

The Collaboratory posts training opportunities for internal and external researchers in the use of the Collaboratory specifically, and more broadly for cloud computing for Big Data ‘omic data sets. Our goal is to create a virtuous cycle that will improve both the tools offered by the Collaboratory, and the research community’s ability to take advantage of these tools.
