Bring Your Own Data (BYOD)
Are you tired of analyzing your transcriptomics datasets the same way every time? Are you stuck with a combined MRI-genetics dataset? Do you have multi-omics datasets that just won’t play nice together? At the Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) session, MaCSBio staff as well as MaCSBio Science Day attendees will assist and advise you in the analysis of your biological dataset.
