From astronomy to molecular biology, our increasing capacity to collect data is changing science. It allows us to ask questions that previously could not have been answered, and it changes the impact that science has on society. Although petabytes of data are now available, most scientific disciplines are failing to translate this sea of data into scientific advances. The missing step between data collection and research progress is a lack of training for researchers in crucial skills for effectively managing and analyzing large amounts of data.

Data Carpentry addresses this gap by teaching researchers the fundamental data skills they need to conduct their work.

Data Carpentry has it's focuses on data analysis skills rather than programming skills (Software Carpentry)
