Target audience:
  • Life Science Researchers
Description:

NBIS (the Swedish node of Elixir) and Elixir Slovenia are offering an "Introduction to Linux" course targeted at life scientists to extend their skills and knowledge. The course is delivered via classroom training and via an e-learning platform, thus offering the participants the possibility of attending the course either by traveling to Linköping, Umea (Sweden) or Ljubljana (Slovenia), or by connecting remotely via the Elixir Slovenia e-learning platform. The number of remote students is limited to 10. The course will be broad-casted from Sweden, Linköping.
NGS technologies generate vast amount of data, usually in the form of very large text files. Trying to handle this data with applications like Word or Excel is difficult or impossible, while using the Linux command line can drastically simplify your work and improve your efficiency. Linux/Unix provides an excellent computing environment for bioinformatics and the command line interpreter (shell) serves as an interface to a large amount of bioinformatics programs. The course provides a basic introduction to Unix/Linux commands for bioinformatics and covers how Unix/Linux commands can be used to manage and inspect your data and results, and how to generate and run bioinformatics pipelines and work-flows using basic shell scripting.
