1. Research Data Management for the Health Sciences
Monday, February 11
10:00 am - 11:00 am, TCC

Data, data everywhere, but not a drop is usable.  ~Rime of the Modern Researcher

Are you a modern researcher? The current capabilities for collecting and generating large data sets mean researchers need to know how to manage their data as a part of their research process. This workshop will overview research data and research data management while providing examples of strategies to keep data findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable (FAIR), and protected.


2. Data Collection Software Demonstration: The REDCap Connection

Tuesday, February 12
10:00 am - 11:00 am, TCC

REDcap is an electronic data collection system that can be used to collect and securely store large datasets.  It is very useful to researchers and widely used throughout the Yale School of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing Schools. Get connected and learn about this great system: what it is, how it is used, why is needed, and how it relates to other data collection systems being used at Yale.

If you have any questions about this session, please email medicaldata@yale.edu.


3. Functional Analysis of Omics Data with Metacore

Wednesday, February 13
10:00 am to 12:00pm, C-103

MetaCore is an integrated software suite for functional analysis of Next Generation Sequencing, variant, CNV, microarray, metabolic, SAGE, proteomics, etc. MetaCore is based on a high-quality, manually-curated knowledge base. In this session we will learn how to search the knowledge base and do overrepresentation analysis to identify and learn about the functional significance (relevant pathways, networks, and diseases) of a list of differentially-regulated molecules.

The Medical Library provides free access to this online software for Yale affiliates. Please register for a MetaCore account before attending this session.
