You like Life? Science? Software? Wanting to learn more about bioinformatics and its awesome applications and potential?
This weekly study group's goal is to bring together fans of biology, science, open source data engineering... to learn new things in a collaborative environment. No formal lessons or lectures. But we'll be around to answer questions and help each other.
Here are some great MOOCs and tutorial resources that many of us enjoy and are happy to discuss, share progress, questions, challenges and achievements:
