DIAG Workshop Wednesdays - Data Management with SQL for Life Scientists

Hi all! The ALVSCE Data Science Team (DIAG) at the University of Arizona is offering monthly workshops on topics of interest that will accelerate and improve research to anyone in the ALVSCE division.

September’s workshop is on databases and SQL. Databases are useful for both storing and using data effectively. Using a relational database serves several purposes:

- Fast
- Can handle much larger datasets than regular files
- Facilitates quality control
- Much more!

Databases are the standard way structured data is stored and used. Furthermore, the concepts of relational database querying are core to understanding how to do similar things using programming languages such as R or Python.

This lesson will be of interest to both data users and creators. We will teach you what relational databases are, how you can load data into them and how you can extract the information that you need.

No preparation necessary. All you need is a web browser. We will be using mybinder.org so there’s nothing to set up.

Event will be held over Zoom at: https://arizona.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcudOiqpzIsHtflmDVvbR6-gGOIfLt...
