2017-2018: (almost) Q2 Benchmark

Goals:
This year's project will still involve learning more about microbiology, but improving my programming skills is my "BIG" goal this year. More specific goals this year include: successfully collecting samples, getting the samples analyzed in a lab, learning how to visually display this analysis, and (hopefully) creating this visualization.

Resources:
Some of the resources I'll need include:

  • a means of analyzing the samples I collect (through a lab, like uBiome)
  • a software to statistically analyze the data I get from aforementioned lab (most likely R).

Questions:
What are the best ways for me to display these data online (how should I sort them)?
On average, how long does it take to analyze samples in the lab?

Timeline:
