Data Literacy with focus on data interpretation through data mining

Date: 24th, 25th, 26th July 2024, Time: 10:00-17:00 each day

Location: Seminar room 306, Campus Lehre building N55, UKE Martinistraße 52, 20251 HH

Lecturer: Dr. Sonja Hänzelmann, Institute of Medical Systems Biology, UKE

Language: English

Description: The course is open to students, researchers and clinicians who want to deepen their skills in data interpretation through the use of data mining techniques including classification. Participants are required to have a basic understanding of programming. In this intensive 3-day workshop participants will be introduced to the world of data literacy, the ability to deal competently with large amounts of data. The aim of the course is to provide concepts and tools for working with large biomedical data sets (RNA sequencing) with a hands-on approach on how to extract relevant insights from complex data. The workshop will be in presence and therefore each participant should bring their own laptop (no ipads).
