Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Our goal is to provide researchers high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research.
From astronomy to molecular biology and digital text, our increasing capacity to collect data is changing research. It allows us to ask questions that previously could not have been answered, and it changes the impact that research has on society. Although petabytes of data are now available, most disciplines are struggling to translate this sea of data into knowledge. The missing step between data collection and research progress is a lack of training for scientists in crucial skills for effectively managing and analyzing large amounts of data. Data Carpentry addresses this gap by teaching researchers the fundamental data skills they need to conduct their research. Our goal is to provide researchers high-quality, domain-specific training covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research. We teach hands-on workshops in data organization, management, and analysis to increase data literacy and improve research efficiency and reproducibility.
