Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)

We developed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Big Data in Biomedicine, with the aim to facilitate the understanding, analysis, and interpretation of biomedical big data for non-computational students, basic and clinical scientists, researchers, and librarians, with limited or no experience in bioinformatics. As of 2019 more than 8000 students have enrolled in the course.

Collaborators: Georgetown edX
