Funding Opportunity Description second paragraph under Courses Skills Development currently reads: Courses must highly relevant and biomedical Big Data but, general, focus specific areas necessary the utilization Big Data, including computational statistical sciences, a biomedical context. Since solutions Big Data problems likely involve interdisciplinary teams, courses should encourage interaction team work among scientists expertise different areas. Course organizers encouraged partner across departments, institutions, sectors necessary best achieve objectives.  paragraph modified read: Courses must highly relevant and biomedical Big Data but, general, focus specific areas necessary the utilization Big Data, including computational statistical sciences, a biomedical context. Since solutions Big Data problems likely involve interdisciplinary teams, courses should encourage interaction team work among scientists expertise different areas. Such disciplines beyond biomedical sciences include, are limited to, statistics, mathematics, computer science, engineering, design-related fields including data visualization, interactive digital media, human-computer interaction. Course organizers encouraged partner across departments, institutions, sectors necessary best achieve objectives. other aspects this FOA remain unchanged.
