At #UCDavis: Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework 5/4/16

Workshop announcement: Open Science Framework

Who: Center for Open Science

When: May 4th, 2016

Where: DSI Space, Shields Library, room 360, UC Davis Campus

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands­ on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

* Project documentation

* Version control

* Pre-Analysis plans

* Open source tools, such as the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework, which can be thought of as an electronic notebook that easily integrates the aforementioned concepts in a workflow.

This workshop is aimed at faculty, staff, and students across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

The three hour workshop is offered at two times to facilitate busy schedules. As space is limited, please register here by April 4th if you plan to attend:

If you register and are no longer able to attend, please contact Jessica Mizzi (jessica.mizzi) and let her know.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
