Raffle of 30 licenses for participation in Nature Masterclasses online courses
Among its members, the Graduate Academy has raffled off 30 licenses for participation in Nature Masterclasses online courses for writing and publishing in the natural sciences.
After a total of 52 applications of interest had been submitted by 6 September, the winners were selected on 7 September. The winning tickets were drawn jointly by the Prorector for Research and Transfer of Knowledge Prof. Dr. Udo Kragl, Corina Reinheckel, Head of the Graduate Academy, and Stephan Redlich, Team Leader Project Acquisition of the Service Center Projects for Research, Education and Transfer.
The winners will be informed personally and will receive the access code via e-mail.
Establishment of a new scientific network at the Graduate Academy
“Open Reproducible Data Science and Statistics“ (ORDS)
Open Reproducible Data Science and Statistics (ORDS) is a scientific network at the Graduate Academy of the University of Rostock. Its goal is to bundle regional expertise in the fields of data analysis and statistics with open and reproducible science in the Rostock-science-region. The focus is on the exchange of expertise between doctoral candidates and postdocs, but all other interested scientists are also welcome.
Due to the interdisciplinary character of modern data-driven science, the network explicitly addresses all disciplines. Besides general questions of data analysis, statistics and reproducibility, the network also focuses on programming environments such as R and Python. While R is mainly used for statistical data analysis and data visualization, Python is especially common in the application of machine learning methods. Besides the actual data analysis, another central point is the management and versioning of data and source code. Modern tools such as the Git version control system, Jupyter notebooks and Docker containers can be used for this purpose.
We want to meet at regular intervals and inform each other about current projects and methods in the field of data analysis and statistics. Furthermore, we have the possibility to invite external experts. Furthermore, seminars and workshops at the Graduate Academy will be dedicated to the topics of ORDS.
