The unhackathon was cancelled by the rampaging coronavirus, but it’s been replaced by an online workshop about it! And that also means it’s FREE!
Join us 12 noon to 1:30pm this Sunday February 9th here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcRu_oHCEFQ
You can comment along, asking questions which we will try to answer.
Noon: Dr. Guy Freeman will talk about gathering online data for one’s own purposes, e.g. the number of cases over time, or search volumes of certain terms.
12:30pm: Dr. Scott Edmunds will talk about the sequencing data, what is available and how to analyse and understand, e.g., nextstrain.
1pm: Professor Ben Cowling will talk about the data and calculations behind measuring the transmission dynamics of 2019-nCoV that were used to write this NEJM paper: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2001316
