Preparing for a session

In your own interest, please prepare the consulting session, so that we can use the limited time to focus on your problem, rather than clarifying the background.
Please bring the following:

  • A short and clear summary of the biological background and the experimental set-up. This can be on slides, or on pen and paper. Visuals are much appreciated.
  • Your biological (not technical!) research question.
  • An overview of your data in tidy format.
