Here are some sites I visit regularly to brush up my knowledge or to learn something completely new.

  • Scitable - very well written articles on genetics and cell biology (no longer maintained).
  • Swirl - A platform for learning statistics and R simultaneously and interactively.
  • Coursera - Enrol in one of the many available courses taught by researchers/lecturers from different universities around the world.
  • EdX offers interactive online classes and MOOCs from the world’s best universities
  • betterexplained.com - Learn mathematics intuitively.
  • Rosalind - Get your hands wet solving bioinformatics problems


Wish list

My wish list of random things I want to learn more about: - Hidden Markov Models (HMMs)

  • Advanced R programming
  • A low level programming language, like C
  • Linear algebra
  • Biostatistics
  • Support Vector Machines (SVMs)
  • Python
  • Discrete mathematics

And lastly if you happen to know of other cool resources for learning that you\'d like to share, please let me know.

  1. Hi,
    I try to run EdgeR without replcate, but I do not know how. Can you please walk me through all the commands (I know very little about computer). Thanks

    1. Hi Chinh,

      There is a section in the edgeR vignette on running an analysis without replicates (specifically it is section “2.9 What to do if you have no replicates”).

      If you plan on using edgeR, I would highly recommend reading it from the edgeR Bioconductor page.



  2. Did you find any good resources to learn linear algebra, discrete mathematics and biostatistics?
