Recorded lectures of the RSSSO 2014 now available on YouTube
Back in 2014 we initiated the Research Summer School in Statistical Omics with the help of many friends and colleagues, and with the support (financial and other) from various sources, including the EU-funded MIMOmics project, in which we participate, and the EU-funded Integra-Life project. In a period of two weeks we immersed 13 students (and ourselves) in an intense learning-by-doing experience of lectures, practicals and actual research projects hosted at the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences on the Adriatic cost near Split, Croatia.
One of the things we were able to do thanks to the major funding contributed by the aforementioned EU-funded research projects was to record the lectures given by the summer school staff and the invited lecturers. Now that the reviewing and editing of the raw material has finished, we are happy to announce that the videos of the lectures can be found on the dedicated RSSSO account on YouTube. A direct link to the playlist of the RSSSO2014 lectures can be found here.
In total we have 19 lectures available, recorded in Full HD format, with topics ranging from basic statistics, regression, and machine learning, to genome-wide association studies, protein glycosylation and reproducible research. Lecturers include not only Yurii and myself, but also esteemed colleagues like Jeanine Houwing-Duistermaat, Gordan Lauc, Ozren Polašek and Igor Rudan (among many others!). Our own lectures cover the following topics:
- 07 – Good practice in human data handling and analysis
- 08 – Genome-Wide Association Studies and multiple testing
- 17 – Reproducible research
