General context

This is a Data Carpentry Workshop, with a special focus on sequence handling for variant calling using the cloud resources, the workshop will introduce you to Genomic concepts and scripting. For those unfamiliar with the concept, Data Carpentry aims at systematically delivering workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. What you will learn during the workshop will largely influence the way in which you handle data in a fully independent way, free from proprietary software and storage platforms. The workshop will be run by Mateusz Kuzak from the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences and Toby Hodges from EMBL BioIT, both highly qualified instructors of the Carpentries The contents of this workshop will be the Genomics Curriculum.
