Concise overview of things learned. Break it up into Technical Area, Tools, Soft Skills:
Technical Area: I understand the main ideas of the paper and the genetics aspect behind these ideas. I know the basics of R and Python.
Tools: We began Python Training this week and continued the R trainings. Also, I understand the tools used in the laboratories used to obtain this data.
Soft Skills: We used the breakout rooms when debriefing the paper, so I feel more comfortable discussing content with people whom I have never met. Also, I am confident now using all of the new forms of communication and organization such as Slack, the STEM-Away forums and Google Calendar.
Three achievement highlights:
- Started Python for the first time ever.
- Defined the genetic terms used in the paper, which helped me understand the content.
- Understand the main purpose and conclusions of the paper.
