Quantitative Methods Workshop

A seven-day intensive workshop designed to introduce students to quantitative tools and programming languages used to analyze experimental data in biology and neuroscience.

The workshop introduced me to multiple quantitative tools and programs. I had never used these tools before, and I didn’t know they could be applied so extensively across so many areas of biology. By explaining how they use these programs in their own research, the instructors gave me a concrete idea about how to analyze my own scientific results, and I later applied to grad school at MIT. I currently study protein-protein interactions using MATLAB — thanks to the workshop, this program is no longer intimidating!
