With a constant evolution of technologies, life scientists (such as laboratory biologists) are faced with an increasing need for bioinformatics skills to deal with high-throughput data storage, retrieval and analysis.
Although several resources developed for such tasks have a web interface (most of the time, the first choice of biologists), many operations can be more efficiently handled with command-line programs and utilities.
This course is addressed to beginners wanting to become familiar with the UNIX environment and master the most common commands, which could be useful to run software dedicated to high-throughput data management.
At the end of the course you should:
Knowledge / competencies
As it is a course for beginners, no background in UNIX or any programming language is required.
A laptop with terminal installed on it prior to the course. Terminal applications are installed by default on Mac and Linux machines. For windows users, we recommend you to install Mobaxterm. Download link to the free Home Edition: https://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/download.html
