As researchers, it is important to keep in mind the clinical relevance of our work. In these sessions, participants will work together in small groups to analyze genomic research data utilizing publicly available online tools. This nanocourse will give participants a sense of how research is linked with the clinical aspect and how researchers can incoporate patient data into their own research. Throughout the sessions, participants will also learn about research and clinical careers that they may be interested in pursuing.

The Arduino is a powerful and inexpensive digital microcontrollers that can be used to develop custom lab instruments. Many tasks that used to require a PC or expensive hardware can be put together with an Arduino and tens of dollars worth of parts. Developing microcontroller-based tools allows researchers to automate and scale up aspects of their research that were previously unfeasible.
This nanocourse will cover the basics of programming an...
