COVID-19 Response: ​BIDS Data Science Services and Consulting

BIDS is convening researchers and resources to address COVID-19. As the demand for data science and data analysis expertise takes on new urgency with the COVID-19 pandemic, BIDS is working with multiple units at UC Berkeley to determine how best to bring our community’s expertise to bear.

BIDS Data Science Services and Consulting helps match the needs of domain experts (such as epidemiologists and clinicians) to data science experts, analysis capabilities and other resources available from the BIDS community. At this time, BIDS is able to provide support for tasks related (but not limited) to:

  • Managing Data - Storing, distributing, and manipulating datasets of all types and sizes.
  • Visualizing Data - Static and interactive visualizations for communicating results and exploring models and datasets.
  • Communicating Results - Publishing data analyses to traditional media, the web, or interactive media like Jupyter notebooks.
  • Software Development and Engineering Best-Practices - The tools of modern data science: version control, automated software documentation & testing, continuous-integration and deployment, etc.

Users of this service are also invited to inquire about data science consulting resources and new projects under way, and to join with us by letting us know what capabilities they may be able to add.
