Leadership within the Scientific Community
Arnaud Legrand has organized a series of webinars on reproducible
research and whose aim is to introduce the audience to one particular
aspect of reproducible research and to illustrate how this aspect can
be addressed with state-of-the-art tools. To this end, experts of a
given topic are invited and their seminar is screencast so that
researchers from other universities can easily follow it. So far, the
following topics have been covered:
Introduction (reproducible research, challenges, ethic,
...) to reproducible research. Producing replicable articles
and managing a laboratory notebook.
Controlling your experimental environment
Logging and backing up your work: a not so short introduction to
git for research
Preserving software: ensuring availability and tracking
Reproducible science in bioinformatics: current status,
solutions and research opportunities
All the corresponding videos and materials are available at the
following address: https://github.com/alegrand/RR_webinars/
