Introduction to this project

Goals of the Project

  • Dive deeper into an area of bioinformatics that interests you
  • Practice structuring a full computational project
  • Get a sense of the level of detail in computational biology that helps (or hinders) reproducibility

Project Overview

Teams of three or more students will select a paper of common interest that includes some variety of -omic analysis. The teams will attempt to replicate the data analyses using the study’s publicly archived data and any/all details included in their materials and methods or supplementary materials. It's good to be ambitious, but huge amounts of data or computation time (think >100 GB or so, or more than 5 days computation) is too much for the scope of this challenge.
