In the first week, summer research students will attend mandatory remote classroom sessions in the mornings taught by course leaders and RNA Institute faculty. During these morning sessions, students will learn the basics of UNIX operating system, the R programming language and bioinformatics pipeline. During the remainder of the day, students will research and learn independently with remote assistance provided by RNA Institute co-leaders. Students will meet up again remotely as a group at the end of the day for a Question and Answer session and for instructors to check in on their learning and research progress during the day.
In the following weeks (2-10), summer research students will maintain this schedule of shorter mandatory remote morning classroom sessions, independent study and end of the day Q&A and check-in session. The schedule of topics for each week (see attached document) are designed to take student through the fundamentals of RNA science and the bioinformatics pipeline.
Students in the summer program must commit to attending these twice daily sessions and to performing independent learning and research during the rest of the day.
