Meet & Analyze (Biological) Data

MAD is a forum to bring your biological big data and discuss high level conceptual problems (what is metagenome assembly?), low level coding problems (what does this error message even mean?!), and everything in between.  Come to this group’s informal meetups with your own questions, or to help others answer theirs.  Typical questions include experimental designs for transcriptomic/metagenomic/genomic projects, how to install software, or how to run analysis on clusters or the cloud. MAD generally meets weekly on Wednesday afternoons and is run by our affiliates at the Lab for Data Intensive Biology as a voluntary effort. Questions? Check out the MAD website and contact Luiz Irber.
