A MacOS, Windows or Linux computer with Anaconda– https://www.anaconda.com/products/individual Installed (Python 3.8 version). With this installation you will automatically receive Python interpreter as well as Spyder IDE. Please try to ensure, prior to the workshop, that Anaconda & Spyder have been successfully installed. Helpful instructions for verifying proper installation can be found in the “Getting Started” section of the Anaconda User Guide: https://docs.anaconda.com/anaconda/user-guide/getting-started/ In case you run into any problems, we will bring up a zoom session 1/2 hour before the class to sort these out.
Dr. Seyoon Ko is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Hua Zhou’s laboratory in the Department of Biostatistics. Dr. Ko’s research interests include large-scale computational methods in biostatistics and bioinformatics using parallel and distributed computing. His current projects include developing scalable software for genome-wide associational study modeling within-subject variability and identifying ancestry-informative markers at the biobank scale. He earned a Ph.D. degree in Statistics from Seoul National University in South Korea, as well as a M.S. degree in Computational Sciences and a B.S. degree in Physics, Mathematical Sciences, and Computational Science.
