APECS workshop at SCARBio17 highlights

from “Piled Higher and Deeper” by Jorge Cham http://www.phdcomics.com

Our overall schedule for the workshop on July 9th immediately prior to SCARBio17 is generally finalized. In the morning we will have exciting talks & time for questions with five invited speakers, in the afternoon we will proceed to a hands-on practice session. In between lunch will be provided. The workshop is centered on science communication and data management, which is interesting not only for biologists!
