Flint's Engineering Portfolio

GBI Bioinformatics class

I taught a 2 week bioinformatics class to 4 individual groups of between 10 and 30 high school, undergraduate, and graduate level students. In order to do so I built a curriculum to take students from having no experience at all with the terminal to a basic understanding of the command line, Amazon Web Services, and a fully annotated chloroplast plastome, including hands on examples and a final report consisting of all the commands and work that they did. This course was broken into 4 segments: 

- The Command Line Tutorial (For Scientists!) (2 modules made up of 4 sections each + a conclusion/test) [https://github.com/Green-Biome-Institute/AWS/wiki/The-Command-Line-Tutorial-(For-Scientists!)]

- Amazon Web Services Tutorials (For Scientists)! (2 modules made up of 4 sections each + a conclusion/test) [https://github.com/Green-Biome-Institute/AWS/wiki/Amazon-Web-Services-Tutorials-(For-Scientists)!]

- Assembly Tutorial (Using a Chloroplast Genome)!  [https://github.com/Green-Biome-Institute/AWS/wiki/Assembly-Tutorial-(Using-a-Chloroplast-Genome)!]

- Trimming, Filtering, and Genome Size Estimation [https://github.com/Green-Biome-Institute/AWS/wiki/Trimming,-Filtering,-Genome-Size-Estimation]

 

The 3rd and 4th groups were given the optional opportunity afterward to fill out a class review without any reward for doing so. Of approximately 50 students between the two classes, 24 opted in and answered (no responses left out):
