BIFX 545 Leading Reproducible Research

Based on the tenants of the "reproducible research" movement, this course teaches the fundamentals of experimental design, research ethics and communication to foster the ability to coordinate multifaceted research collaborations between scientists with backgrounds in biology, computer science and biostatistics.  Using examples from classical literature and the concepts extolled by philosophers from around the world, we will explore alternative modes of leadership based on effective communication between individuals from different backgrounds.  While this course is essential for those in the field of bioinformatics, anyone who is interested leading high-quality research will benefit from this course.
