Organizer: Edinburgh Genomics

Start: Friday, 20 January 2017 @ 00:00

End: Friday, 20 January 2017 @ 00:00

Venue: The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh

City: Edinburgh

Country: United Kingdom

Scientific topic: Bioinformatics

Description:

Genomic studies produce vast amounts of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Linux is particularly suited to working with such files, and is therefore arguably one of the most important tools in a bioinformatician’s toolkit. The Linux command-line enables one to view, filter and manipulate large text files that are difficult or impossible to handle with applications like Word or Excel, write pipelines to perform certain tasks, and run bioinformatics software for which no web interface is available. In this workshop we will first cover the most used Linux commands, followed by a short introduction to several popular command-line tools that were especially developed for genomics as well as file formats commonly used in genomics (BED, FASTA, FASTQ, GFF/GTF, SAM/BAM, VCF).
