Event Type:  Workshop (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Reproducibility in Bioinformatics Workshop
Description:  The National Library of Medicine is excited to announce our three-day workshop on Reproducibility in Bioinformatics, which will take place from September 24 to 26, 2018 (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) in Building 10. This hands-on workshop is geared towards NIH researchers with programming knowledge at all career stages who would like to better understand how to conduct reproducible research.

Reproducibility can be defined as the ability of a researcher to duplicate the results of a prior study using the same materials (such as data) and procedures (such as analytic approaches) as were used by the original investigator. Reproducibility has become a priority at NIH, requiring that researchers adopt best practices to facilitate reproducible research early on.

During this workshop, participants will learn about essential tools for reproducible research by working to reproduce the results of a paper in the bioinformatics literature with available data. Suggestions for papers to reproduce have been provided in the application. Participants may choose to reanalyze the underlying data by either replicating the methods detailed in the paper or using an alternate analysis methodology. At the end of this workshop, participants will have:

A working knowledge of tools for reproducible research and NLM’s data resources for bioinformatics, including Jupyter notebooks, containerization, AWS cloud computing, and Git;
An understanding how to incorporate those tools into their research practices;
A path towards a deliverable on the paper they have reproduced, in the form of an executable notebook and/or publication.

Due to limited space, interested participants must apply: Applications will close Wednesday, August 15 and applicants will be notified of their participation by Friday, August 24. 25 applicants will be accepted, and applications will be evaluated based on interest and skill.
