Using the Linux operating system and the bash command line interface, we will demonstrate the basic structure of the UNIX operating system and how we can interact with it using a basic set of commands. Applying this, we will learn how to navigate the filesystem, manipulate text-based data and structure simple pipelines out of these commands.
Building on this foundation, the course will use a bioinformatics example to demonstrate how the skills learnt can be applied to connecting to external resources/servers, installing specialist tools and ultimately combining commands into scripts for automation and reproducibility.
This course is targeted at participants with no prior experience working with UNIX-like systems (OSX, Linux) or command line interfaces.
The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
