Introduction
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:
https://github.com/StevenWingett/LifeSciencesTrainingDatasets

There is also a web interface for these projects at:
https://www.bioinformatics.babraham.ac.uk/trainingdata/

Aims
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.

Possible Extensions
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.

    Hi Abdullah,

    Thanks for your message. You don’t have to do anything in advance, but on the day of the hackathon just say you want to join this team. We will be using the software MS Teams and will have a special channel for this project. Everything is informal, we just want to write some code and have fun. I’ll be sending emails to everyone shortly asking people to install MS Teams (and Zoom).

    Please let me know if you have any more queries.

    All the best,

    Steven

    The project is aimed at people with basic / intermediate R skills, so you are certainly welcome to join. And if you find anything difficult, just spend some time learning more R in your own time. That is what the hackathon is for after all. I look forward to discussing this with you on Monday.
