Using R / Bioconductor in AnVIL

Popup Workshop
Monday, April 26, 2021 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT

Bioconductor popup workshops provide short (less than 1 hour) virtual sessions to highlight specific parts of the Terra / AnVIL ecosystem for R and Bioconductor users.

The sessions are easy for participants to join and follow along, with minimal prerequisite skills or knowledge; it is not necessary to attend all workshops.

Sessions will have short presentations, with abundant opportunity for questions and ‘round table’ discussion about the topic of the workshop or other AnVIL-related activities.

The main goal is to engage and enable the use of AnVIL / Terra by R users. All sessions will be recorded and available after the workshop. Each workshop will include a short one-page summary of key learning objectives.

Tutorials and Videos

For a tutorial based on the workshop with an accompanying tutorial see Using R / Bioconductor in AnVIL.

Please SIGN UP to receive connection information for each workshop.


All workshops are offered on Mondays at lunchtime, 12:00 - 1:00 US Eastern, starting April 26.
