The Babraham Bioinformatics group has compiled numerous life sciences datasets with a view to using these in future training courses. These datasets have also been made publicly available to assist other researchers and students with learning data analysis.
The training materials are stored in a GitHub repository at:
There is also a web interface for these projects at:
The aim of this project is to:
- Write simple R scripts to summarise datasets used in our training courses. Following the hackathon, we aim to incorporate many of these extra plots in our GitHub repository.
- Search for new data to incorporate into our repository.
Desired Skill Level
This project is aimed at people who have a basic understanding of R and can use the language to generate simple plots.
It would be nice to replicate what has been achieved in R using Python/Matplotlib. This extension project is open to people who have these Python/Matplotlib skills.
