Do you need a better way to store your structured research data?

Structured Query Language (SQL) is the standard means for reading from and writing to databases. Databases use multiple tables, linked by well-defined relationships, to store large amounts of data without needless repetition while maintaining the integrity of your data.

Moving from spreadsheets and text documents to a structured relational database will reward you many times over in speed, efficiency and power.

This session has been developed using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (

You'll learn how to:
● Understand and compose a query using SQL
● Use the SQL syntax to select, sort and filter data
● Calculate new values from existing data
● Aggregate data into sums, averages, and other operations
● Combine data from multiple tables
● Design and build your own relational databases


Researchers and PhD students. 

There are no prerequisites to taking this course.
