Training in Computational Literacy

Bringing computational tools to bench scientists risks their misuse and data misinterpretation without basic training in the concepts and methods that underlie these tools. Responsibility for data management and analysis often falls on graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who must familiarize themselves with software tools, or even programming languages, without the benefit of formal training or peer or supervisor mentorship. For established researchers, the pace of development of software tools makes it difficult to stay current on the best available techniques for bioinformatics analysis on top of other responsibilities. We aim to provide training services addressing these needs in the HIV/AIDS research community.  If you are interested in computational training for your group, please get in touch so we can discuss the possibilities.
