The NIH Big Data to Knowledge program has announced the spring semester of The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science, a series of online lectures given by experts from across the country covering a range of diverse topics in data science. This course is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science.
The series will run through May, meeting once per week from 12 noon–1 p.m. Eastern Time/9 a.m.–10 a.m. Pacific Time. No registration is required.

This is a joint effort of the BD2K Training Coordinating Center, the BD2K Centers Coordination Center, and the NIH Office of the Associate Director of Data Science.
The first semester of the series covered data management and data representation. This semester will cover computing, data modeling, and overarching topics.
