Welcome to the BBDTC!
The BBDTC is the Biomedical Big Data Training Collaborative – a new web portal designed to support modern-day training needs in biomedical data science. If you are here, you either heard about the BBDTC or you stumbled upon it and look for more information.
Here are BBDTC, we seeks to organize the large amounts of training materials being generated by researchers all over the world in the fields of biomedical big data science. To this end, the collaborative includes a growing number of lecture materials, including powerpoint presentations and lecture videos, hands-on exercises with real-world examples, and virtual machine toolboxes for biomedical big data activities.
So, how do you become a part of the BBDTC community? Anyone can create a BBDTC login and then customize their own training environment to best suit their needs. And it includes you! Please register yourself.
Once your login is created, you can sign up for courses being offered in a variety of science areas related to biomedical big data, e.g., we are about to publish an introductory course that explains what biomedical big data is and where it comes from. You can also upload your own course materials (including lecture slide decks and links to YouTube videos, as well as required hands-on tools), in order to share the materials with the broader community. Once training materials are uploaded as public resources, after a quick approval process, they become available to anyone logged on the site. That means, anyone can use these materials as a part of online courses. Even the faculty teaching traditional classroom courses can use these materials to augment their courses. As the original provider, you can track the views and downloads of these materials.
All BBDTC content is tagged and searchable, providing quick and easy access for instructors and trainees to find and use relevant materials.
We are happy to build this resource and hope that you have fun while learning with it!
