Winter Science Speaker Series: Emmy Gagne
“Increasing Scientific Capacity Through Workshopping: Delivering Educational Material to International Participants”
Learning how to visualize and understand genetic data is a valuable skill for scientists, especially as access to sequencing data expands. This talk will discuss the importance of delivering bioinformatics workshops to participants in Madagascar and will review methods that can be utilized to deliver educational material to international participants.
