HDE Second Annual Data Dive

Join us for exploration and discovery with a variety of data sources in this workshop/hackathon format. Data specialists will be on hand to walk us through data sets and demonstrate tools for analysis and visualization. This year, we are offering free American Gut Project* kits to the first 50 individuals who sign up. Be sure to sign up soon: participation is limited and on a first-come-first-served basis.

*We will mail kits to participants upon registration. We encourage you to submit your kit samples early so that you can receive your results in time for the data dive!
