The course will take place on February 13, 9:30 am to 17:00 pm at the EMBL ATC computer training lab.
This course will teach you the basics of the most powerful aspects of command line computing on Linux operating systems and other Unix environments such as Mac OS X. Knowing how to quickly and specifically access information from huge files, customise your working environment, and write scripts to make your analyses automated and flexible, is extremely valuable and powerful for modern biological research. The skills that you learn on this course could save you a huge amount of time in the future, as well as ensuring that your research is more reproducible by making it easy to maintain consistency across the analysis of many samples.
This course is aimed at users who have basic knowledge of Linux commands (man, cd, pwd, cp, rm, mkdir, cat, less, grep, head, ssh etc.), perhaps from attending the other Bio-IT course, “Introduction to Linux Command Line”.
If you don't have prior knowledge of these commands, please attend the introductory course taking place on February 12.
The course material covers:
Maximum capacity for the course is 30 participants and registration is required to secure a place.
