Course Syllabus

Welcome to the 2019 dkNET Summer of Data Student Internship Program. The goal of this program is to provide students with an opportunity to utilize the dkNET tools and resources in research projects, to learn the basics of good data management for FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data. Students will receive hands-on training on how to use dkNET to find and evaluate research resources, how to use online data and tools to develop hypotheses to enhance their own projects as well as how to learn the best practices in data management for robust and reproducible research.

In the first week of the program, we will have an online orientation with students and their Principal Investigators (PIs) on July 9 ,2019 at 11am - 12pm PDT. We will give a brief introduction of the summer program, the expectations, approaches and and the topics to be covered in the webinars. 

There will be five 1.5-hour online webinar and discussion sessions every Friday at 11:00am -12:30pm PDT from July 12, 2019 to August 9, 2019. Students will learn about dkNET services and tools, including Resource Reports, Discovery Portal, Authentication Reports, Hypothesis Center (Signaling Pathways Project), FAIR data, data management, and other useful tools such as protocols.io. Students will then have a hands-on session to practice and discuss how these tools might be used in their projects. 

A final student project presentation will be held online on August 16, 2019 at 11:00am -12:30pm PDT. Students will present their work and provide feedback on their experience, i.e., what did they find useful and not useful? A final standard report (ca. 2 pages in length) is also due at the end of the program.

Students are required to attend all webinar sessions. All webinar sessions are open to their Principal Investigators and laboratory members.

Questions about the program should be directed to:  Dr. Ko-Wei Lin (koweilin@ucsd.edu)
