The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science Series

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Initiative presents this virtual lecture series on the data science underlying modern biomedical research. Since its beginning in September 2016, the webinar series consists of presentations from experts across the country covering the basics of data management, representation, computation, statistical inference, data modeling, and other topics relevant to “big data” in biomedicine. The webinar series provides essential training suitable for individuals at an introductory overview level. All video presentations from the seminar series are streamed for live viewing, recorded, and posted online for future viewing and reference. These videos are also indexed as part of TCC’s Educational Resource Discovery Index (ERuDIte). This webinar series is a collaboration between the TCC, the NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science, and BD2K Centers Coordination Center (BD2KCCC).
