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

I didn’t have any computational biology experience before the workshop, which allowed me to explore different aspects of the field in a matter of days. I learned MATLAB, and I also learned to use ImageJ to analyze the intensity of different fluorescent proteins in an image. I continue to use these same techniques today to analyze the images I take with confocal microscopes as part of my research in the Littleton lab.
