Event Description

Open Science Community Saudi Arabia is very happy to partner with Metagenomics-based Drug Discovery Lab (MBDD) at King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences (KSAU-HS) to deliver a workshop under the title "Beginners Guide for R through Open Data Science Practices". The workshop will be delivered by instructors and facilitators from ArabR, Carpentries in MENA and SSBCB.

The materials are based on the Carpentries and a publication by Lowndes et al. 2017, Nature Ecology & Evolution: Our path to better science in less time using open data science tools.

On the 2nd day of the workshop, we will run a ReproHacK for:

Rutter, L., Moran Lauter, A.N., Graham, M.A. et al. Visualization methods for differential expression analysis. BMC Bioinformatics 20, 458 (2019).

We are all excited by the progress made by authors in making their papers reproducible by publishing associated code and data.

We know how challenging it can be so we want to showcase the value of the practice, both for original authors and as a learning experience for those who attempt to reproduce the work.

It’s important to highlight that our events are by no means an attempt to criticise or discredit work. We see reproduction as beneficial scientific activity in itself, with useful outcomes for authors and valuable learning experiences for the participants and the research community as a whole.
