Overview of SCINet Training opportunities

One of SCINet’s main objectives is training scientists in computational methods to empower agricultural research. We are doing this in several ways. We offer online and in-person trainings, support topic-specific working groups, and provide help, training, and tutorials for scientists.

Online trainings

SCINet is working to bring certified courses in statistics, machine learning, and programming through partnerships with online education vendors like Coursera. Information about those partnerships and information on courses you can start today can be found on this page.


SCINet sponsors online and in-person workshops on specific topics such as Carpentries courses. Visit the upcoming training events or training archive pages for more information.
