Biobytes are short activities that help groups engage with data science principles and practices. These four activities were used during a series of 30 minute large group session at the 2019 BioQUEST / QUBES Summer Workshop titled, “Evolution of Data in the Classroom: From Data to Data Science”.
The initial collection of biobytes includes activities designed to be used with undergraduate faculty to facilitate the collaborative exploration of the intersection of data science and undergraduate biology education.
Biobyte 1 - Where are we in the data science landscape?
Biobyte 2 - Exploratory data analysis
Biobyte 3 - Lab reports as reproducible research
Biobyte 4 - The role of data science principles and practices in undergraduate biology education
There is a discussion forum here where you are encouraged to share ideas for how to use these materials, make them better, and build new biobytes.
If you have comments, questions, or suggestions please feel free to contact Sam Donovan <firstname.lastname@example.org> or visit the biobytes discussion forum.
This short activity can be used to introduce the NAS Data Science For Undergraduates report's definition of data acumen and engage participants in a self assessment of how they connect with those 10 data science concepts.
This short activity can be used to introduce the concept of exploratory data analysis and get participants to think about how this data science strategy is complementary to having students interpret graphs.
This short activity introduces a discussion of reproducibility in scientific research and ways that we might address these ideas with undergraduates. There is an opportunity to use a prototype version of Serenity to explore BIRDD data.
This short activity was an effort to launch a community conversation around the interface of data science principles and practices and undergraduate biology education. A variety of resources, communities, and projects are shared.
