Training Resources for Fellows and Staff

DCEG supports a culture of continual learning. The following training courses, workshops, and seminars are offered either on-site or online.

Cloud4Bio - Weekly Hackathon on Cloud Computing and Data Science

Cloud4Bio is a weekly coder’s meeting to experiment and keep up with advances in the use of Cloud and Web Computing for Cancer Research. The data intensive nature of this domain calls for the creation and analysis of BigData that can then be used to contextualize individual observations - the computational essence of Precision Medicine. The development of Serverless Web Services and Applications are therefore a major practical focus of this group. Learn more about Cloud4Bio.
