Upcoming Workshops

Introduction to Terra: A scalable platform for biomedical research
Terra is a cloud-native platform for biomedical researchers to access data, run analysis tools, and collaborate. This interactive workshop on Terra will teach you the skills you need to know to start working and collaborating securely in Terra. Specifically, you’ll learn about the architecture of Terra as it relates to cloud-based data sets, tools, and computing resources. You’ll explore how data is organized in Terra, and then get hands-on launching a Cloud Environment from your Terra workspace to run interactive analysis tools like Jupyter Notebooks, RStudio, and Galaxy. And we’ll also familiarize you with costs and billing in Terra so that you know what actions incur cloud costs and how to pay for them.

This is an in-person workshop.

Monday, June 27
1:00 - 4:00pm
Registration is closed.
Those accepted for the workshop will be notified on June 21.

Primer on Medical and Population Genetics
The Primer on Medical and Population Genetics is a series of weekly lectures on genetics topics related to human populations and disease. Experts from across the Medical and Population Genetics community at the Broad Institute give in-depth introductions to research in human genetics through overviews of core concepts and practical tutorials on tools for biostatistics, computational genomics, and variant annotation. Several talks each year focus on bioethical considerations in genomics research. Sessions are generally interactive and attendees are encouraged to raise questions.

Please note: When the weekly MPG meeting is cancelled (due to weather, conflicting events, etc.), primers are also cancelled.
