Summer Workshops

Summer Workshops.

Training new students in research and analytical techniques is essential. Within CRAWL, there is enough overlap of concepts and techniques so that we can schedule much of this training into summer workshops (Table 1). Our plan is to hold several 1- or 2-day workshops early each summer on biological and mathematical techniques. The learning will be hands-on and, in most instances, will use current projects as case studies.
