How to Ask Scientific Questions

Bioinformatics lies at the intersection of computer science and biology, but research in any field is about a lot more than just technical knowledge. Scientific research is about asking scientific questions, and investigating them through hypotheses, experiments, and/or engineering. In this workshop, we’ll get the opportunity to learn the scientific process and learn how to come up with scientific questions that are meaningful, measurable, and practical.

Coding Problems and How to Solve Them

Research in bioinformatics is based on critical knowledge of biology as well as an understanding of the scientific process. However, programming is a major component that students with a burgeoning interest in bioinformatics should dive into right away. In this workshop, we’ll tackle several logical coding problems as a group. While the workshop will be based in Python, no prior coding experience is required – all you need is to be excited to learn!
