Sydney Hacky Hour held its second ever session, at the Westmead Institute for Medical Research, as part of a day of training and events tailored to members and partners of WIMR and the Westmead Research Hub. Our “Westmead Bonanza” included Hacky Hour, SIH’s Intro to DNA/RNA Sequencing workshop, and an Experimental and Survey Design workshop run jointly by statistical consultant Chris Howden and the Research Data Management team.
Happily, Hacky Hour was once again a success, with researchers bringing a range of questions from command line automation, to statistical analysis, skin cancer genetics and visualisations of phylogenetic trees. The DNA/RNA and Experimental Design courses were both booked out, and have since become part of our regular course offerings.
Hacky Hour and all SIH trainings aim to reach all University members – if you’d like to host a Hacky Hour at your end of campus, or have a training course scheduled for Camden or Cumberland or Lismore, let us know!
