Marine Biological Laboratories

Woods hole, MAssachusetts

Graduate students joining programs in the Biological Sciences benefit from a unique opportunity to kick start their graduate careers by attending a quantitative analysis bootcamp just before the school year begins. First year students benefit from establishing a core level of familiarity with computational workflows and the programming language R; and by participating in a range of professional development activities and discussions designed to build camaraderie, to be prepared for the first year of graduate school regardless of the instructional format, and to be introduced more broadly to the University of Chicago community.
