Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a new SIB workshop entitled:

*"Reproducible research"*.

This 1-day workshop will be held at the SIB Swiss Institute of 
Bioinformatics in Lausanne on the *4th of April 2014*.
This course will focus on the concept and techniques that allow 
statisticians/data analysts to ensure as much as possible that their 
analysis performed using R is reproducible.

Reproducible research in statistical analysis is the idea that it should 
be possible for other people to reproduce a published data analysis and 
obtain the same results ("other people" also include the person who did 
the initial data analysis, 6 months later). While all data analysts 
agree that the concept of reproducible research is important, very few 
of them actually take active steps to ensure that their work is 

Participants should have experience in using R for analyzing data. Basic 
knowledge of LaTeX or LyX is an advantage.
Participants should bring a laptop and be able to install custom 
applications. A list of required applications including R, LaTeX and GIT 
will be provided before the course.

The course is organized by the Bioinformatics Core Facility (BCF) of the 
SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.

Further information and registration are available from 
Please note that the number of seats is limited.

Hope to see you there!

For the organizers,
Diana Marek
