Version Control with Git https://dresa.org.au/materials/version-control-with-git Have you mistakenly overwritten programs or data and want to learn techniques to avoid repeating the loss? Version control systems are one of the most powerful tools available for avoiding data loss and enabling reproducible research. While the learning curve can be steep, our trainers are there to answer all your questions while you gain hands on experience in using Git, one of the most popular version control systems available. Join us for this workshop where we cover the fundamentals of version control using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation. #### You'll learn: - keep versions of data, scripts, and other files - examine commit logs to find which files were changed when - restore earlier versions of files - compare changes between versions of a file - push your versioned files to a remote location, for backup and to facilitate collaboration #### Prerequisites: The course has no prerequisites. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/git101).** training@intersect.org.au Data Management, Git

WEBINAR: Protection of genomic data and the Australian Privacy Act: when is genomic data 'personal information'? https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-protection-of-genomic-data-and-the-australian-privacy-act-when-is-genomic-data-personal-information This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Protection of genomic data and the Australian Privacy Act: when is genomic data ‘personal information’?’. This webinar took place on 6 April 2022. **Event description** It is easy to assume that genomic data will be captured by legal definitions of ‘health information’ and ‘genetic information’, but the legal meaning of ‘genetic information’ need not align with scientific categories.  There are many different types of genomic data, with varied characteristics, uses and applications.  Clarifying when genomic data is covered by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) is an ongoing evaluative exercise but is important for at least 3 reasons:  1. those subject to the Privacy Act need to be able to confidently navigate their responsibilities 2. understanding current controls is a prerequisite for meaningful external critique (and this is particularly important at a time when the Privacy Act is under review), and 3. while legislation that applies to state public sector agencies is generally distinct from the Privacy Act there are similarities that extend the relevance of the question when is genomic data ‘personal information’ under the Privacy Act? In this presentation, Mark will explore the relationship between the legal concept of genetic information and the concept of genomic data relevant to health and medical research, reflect on the characteristics of each, and the possibility Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event. **Files and materials included in this record:** - Event metadata (PDF): Information about the event including, description, event URL, learning objectives, prerequisites, technical requirements etc. - Index of training materials (PDF): List and description of all materials associated with this event including the name, format, location and a brief description of each file. - Taylor_Slides (PDF): A PDF copy of the slides presented during the webinar. **Materials shared elsewhere:** A recording of this webinar is available on the Australian BioCommons YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/Iaei-9Gu-AI Melissa Burke (melissa@biocommons.org.au) Bioinformatics, Genomics, Genetic data, Personal information, Health information, Privacy

Network Know-how and Data Handling Workshop https://dresa.org.au/materials/network-know-how-and-data-handling-workshop This workshop is a ‘train-the-trainer’ session that covers topics such as jargon busting, network literacy and data movement solutions. The workshop will also provide a peek at some collaborative research tools such as Jupyter Notebooks and CloudStor. You will learn about networks, integrated tools, data and storage and where all these things fit in the researcher’s toolkit. This workshop is targeted at staff who would like to be more confident in giving advice to researchers about the options available to them. It is especially tailored for those with little to no technical knowledge and includes a hands-on component, using basic programming commands, but requires no previous knowledge of programming.
