A one-week computing bootcamp will be provided to teach students essential data science using R, and advanced data processing and deep learning methods using Python. Each student will be jointly mentored by a computer science mentor and a biology mentor. The computing training includes coding, modeling, simulation, deep learning neural networks, computer vision, parallel computing, statistics, data visualization, and mobile App development.
Student application includes an application form, transcripts, a personal statement, a resume, preferences of research topics, and at least 2 letters of recommendations. All application materials will be upload through an online-application form. Student applications will be reviewed by a team of faculty research mentors. (Please note that the application form is a Google-form whichl requires a Gmail account to complete).
