No prior knowledge is required to participate in either digital workshop. If you are able, we suggest bringing a laptop.
For the network analysis workshop, the speakers suggest that attendees install the program Cytoscape before the workshop. You can download Cytoscape by clicking on the "Download" link at http://www.cytoscape.org
Participants will need internet access during the workshop. Rutgers is an Eduroam campus. If your campus also participates in Eduroam, you can create an account on your home campus network to get online on any participating campus. If you do not have access to Eduroam, you can obtain guest WiFi access at the meeting. (A correction from before: there is no need to pre-register for WiFi access.)
