Module 6 Demystifying ‘Big Data’

Happy Friday, BIT 295 Scholars, 

In Module 6, we are learning about Demystifying ‘Big Data’ and High Throughput Approaches and applying it to our Team Project Design Challenge! We are learning so much about high throughput sequencing approaches and how they can generate large data sets. Learning from “Big Data” can be an incredible exploration of life on this planet and how we can learn from other organisms! It is in our differences that hold solutions to some of life’s greatest challenges. 

Our Module 6 Expectations are:

  • Attend the spooky in-person Lab Session on Tuesday, 10/31, in Jordan Hall.
  • Complete Book 6 with the accompanying Scaffolded Notes 6 by Thursday, 11/2, at 10 AM.
