I learned much more than when I tried to learn this on my own!

This has been a great experience, it was very easy to follow and the instructor was phenomenal! I learned a lot and I feel much more comfortable opening a terminal and learning how to work with it now.

I appreciate greatly that this course is offered for free. It is incredibly helpful for graduate students who may not have studied coding in past work, but want to leverage computation to advance our research. Thanks!

It’s a great workshop. Highly recommend for whoever wants to learn -omics analysis without any programming background!
