DIBS Programming Basics for Neuroscience

Edge Events - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 21:00
Mon, Mar 2, 2015: 4:00 PM - 7:15 PM
Edge: Workshop Room

Computing skills form one of the foundations of modern neuroscience research, but learning to program and analyze data can be intimidating, and most materials are targeted at students in computer science and engineering, not biologists. In this workshop, we will offer a gentle introduction to computing for neuroscience students that focuses on data analysis. Over the course of five three-hour sessions, students will learn: 

  • how to use the shell to automate basic tasks like copying files and running analyses 
  • an introduction to version control: "track changes" on steroids 
  • the basics of programming in Python with the iPython notebook: coding in your browser! 
  • plotting and summarizing data 
Please bring your own computer to the workshop. Registration is required. For information on fees and registration, please contact Elizabeth Johnson at johnson@neuro.duke.edu.
