The workshop will include interactive seminars given by selected experts in the field covering all aspects of (FAIR) small animal MRI data acquisition, analysis, and sharing. The seminars will be followed by hands-on training where participants will perform use case scenarios using software established by the organizers. This will include an introduction to the basics of using command line interfaces, Python installation, working with Docker/Singularity containers, Datalad/Git, and BIDS.
Session 7: Practical Guide to Overcome the Reproducibility Crisis in Small Animal Neuroimaging: Workflows, Tools, and Repositories
This lesson provides an introduction to the DataLad, a free and open source distributed data management system that keeps track of your data, creates structure, ensures reproducibility, supports collaboration, and integrates with widely used data infrastructure.
This lesson introduces several open science tools like Docker and Apptainer which can be used to develop portable and reproducible software environments.
In this hands-on session, you will learn how to explore and work with DataLad datasets, containers, and structures using Jupyter notebooks.
