[November 2022, Montpellier] Data Toolbox for Reproducible Research in Computational Ecology

The CESAB and the GDR EcoStat organize the fourth edition of the training course, late November 2022, in the CESAB premises in Montpellier.

 

The objective of this five-day course is to train young researchers in reproducibility, software development and version management tools (R, git, rmarkdown, renv, docker), applied to biodiversity research.

[3-7 October 2022, Montpellier] Biodiversity knowledge synthesis: an introduction to meta-analyses and systematic reviews

The CESAB of the FRB is organizing the first edition of a five-day course aiming to train young researchers on the methods and techniques of meta-analyses and systematic reviews/maps applied to the field of biodiversity. The training course will be given in French and will take place from 3 to 7 October 2022 at CESAB, in Montpellier.

 

In addition, it will be an opportunity to become familiar with the various  different tools available, both bibliographic (e.g., WOS; Zotero/Mendeley/Endnote) and statistical (R packages: metaDigisitise, metafor…), necessary for undertaking a review and meta-analysis.

[19-21 October 2020, Online] Ecoinfofair2020

Within the framework of the research infrastructure “National hub for biodiversity data” (in French PNDB: Pôle national des données de biodiversité), the research and actions in progress on making data FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable – propose the implementation of products and services, around the biodiversity data, “as FAIR and open as possible”.

 

Thanks to the support of the DevLOG network (network of actors in the field of software development within Higher Education and Research), the PNDB is organizing workshops open to all, including an introductory training aspect.

[2-6 December 2019, Montpellier] Data Toolbox for Reproducible Research in Computational Ecology

The CESAB and the GDR EcoStat organized the training course “Data toolbox for reproducible research in computational ecology“ from the 2nd to the 6th of December 2019. 

 

17 students, engineers and researchers from all over France came to attend this training at CESAB’s premises in Montpellier.

 

Nicolas CASAJUS (FRB-Cesab), Stéphane DRAY (CNRS LBBE), Olivier GIMENEZ (CNRS Cefe), Loreleï GUÉRY (IRD Marbec), François GUILHAUMON (IRD Marbec), Nina SCHIETTEKATTE (EPHE Criobe) presented the essential tools for reproducible research (git/GitHub, rmarkdown, drake, R packages, etc.). Participants put into practice the knowledge acquired at the beginning of the training through projects in sub-groups. Everyone left satisfied with this experience.
