Data labs

Hone and expand your skills using real RNA-seq datasets from infectious disease research

The worm lab

An in-class and open-code exam

You may have heard of a Hackathon before - an event that typically lasts several days and brings together people for a collaborative challenge in computer programming. Well, we don't quite have time for a full Hackathon, so we'll do a mad dash to the finish line instead. This 2hr in-class assignment will test your ability to use recent class material and code to solve a problem in a real RNAseq dataset.

The Malaria Lab

Explore gene expression throughout the Plasmodium falciparum erythrocytic cycle

In this lab, you'll have to up your game to tackle one of world's deadliest pathogens.
