What are the Research Computing Lessons?#
This is a small knowledge base of questions, answers, and associated media to get you up to speed with reproducible practices for research computing.
Why were they created?#
There are a lot of nice interfaces, but scientific programming still lives on a command line. If you are a new graduate student with expertise in a biological domain, it’s sometimes expected for you to have expertise in scientific programming. It’s not always the case that departments provide this training for you.
What can I learn?#
These lessons are bite sized, meaning that they will typically be short tutorials under a larger topic that shows you how to do one simple thing.
What if my question isn't answered?#
How do I contribute?#
You can read about the steps in our contribution pages.
Who is responsible for this?#
The lessons are maintained by @vsoch and other open source contributors.
