This is the first of two workshops on reproducibility in science, during which participants are introduced to concepts of FAIR and open science. After discussing the definition of and need for FAIR science, participants are walked through tutorials on installing and using Github and Docker, the powerful, open-source tools for versioning and publishing code and software, respectively.
This lesson contains both a lecture and a tutorial component. The lecture (0:00-20:03 of YouTube video) discusses both the need for intersectional approaches in healthcare as well as the impact of neglecting intersectionality in patient populations. The lecture is followed by a practical tutorial in both Python and R on how to assess intersectional bias in datasets. Links to relevant code and data are found below.
This lesson describes the fundamentals of genomics, from central dogma to design and implementation of GWAS, to the computation, analysis, and interpretation of polygenic risk scores.
This lesson contains the slides (pptx) of a lecture discussing the necessary concepts and tools for taking into account population stratification and admixture in the context of genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The free-access software Tractor and its advantages in GWAS are also discussed.
This lesson is an overview of transcriptomics, from fundamental concepts of the central dogma and RNA sequencing at the single-cell level, to how genetic expression underlies diversity in cell phenotypes.
This lecture provides an introduction to Plato’s concept of rationality and Aristotle’s concept of empiricism, and the enduring discussion between rationalism and empiricism to this day.
This lecture goes into further detail about the hard problem of developing a scientific discipline for subjective consciousness.
In this lesson, you will learn about how genetics can contribute to our understanding of psychiatric phenotypes.
This lecture gives an introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
The lecture provides an overview of the core skills and practical solutions required to practice reproducible research.
This lecture covers multiple aspects of FAIR neuroscience data: what makes it unique, the challenges to making it FAIR, the importance of overcoming these challenges, and how data governance comes into play.
This lecture covers the processes, benefits, and challenges involved in designing, collecting, and sharing FAIR neuroscience datasets.
This lecture covers the benefits and difficulties involved when re-using open datasets, and how metadata is important to the process.
This lecture will provide an overview of Addgene, a tool that embraces the FAIR principles developed by members of the INCF Community. This will include an overview of Addgene, their mission, and available resources.
This lecture covers the IBI Data Standards and Sharing Working Group, including its history, aims, and projects.
This session covers the framework of the International Brain Lab (IBL) and the data architecture used for this project.
The FOSTER portal has produced a number of guides to help implement Open Science practices in daily workflows, including The Open Science Training Handbook. It provides many basic definitions, concepts, and principles that are key components of open science, as well as general guidance for developing and implementing these practices in one's own research environments.
