Command-Line Programming & Bioinformatics for Beginners

Posted on by ASN Grads

The American Society of Naturalists Graduate Council will be hosting a pre-conference workshop, “Command-Line Programming and Bioinformatics for Beginners”, at Evolution 2020. This workshop is specifically aimed toward graduate students and post-docs that

  1. have minimal previous experience with these tools, and
  2. do not have access to learn these tools at their current institution.  

The workshop will be held from 9 AM to 5 PM on June 19, 2020 in Room 22 at the Huntington Convention Center, Cleveland, OH.

Participants will need to bring their own laptop. Workshop amenities will include a packaged lunch and refreshment breaks throughout the day. Since this is a pre-conference workshop, we will also be offering a limited number of travel waivers to eligible applicants with financial needs to help reduce the additional costs associated with attending this workshop.
