Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science
As biomedical tools and technologies rapidly improve, researchers are producing and analyzing a rapidly increasing amount of complex biological data called “big data.”
The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program was launched in 2014 to facilitate broad use of biomedical big data, develop and disseminate analysis methods and software, enhance training relevant for large-scale data analysis, and establish centers of excellence for biomedical big data.
The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science is a series of online lectures given by experts from across the United States covering the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, and other topics relevant to “big data” in biomedicine. The course is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science.
You can view slides and abstracts and archived videos from each lecture.
