  • Linux for Genomics

    1 October 2018

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Linux for Genomics 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). 2018-10-01 09:00:00 UTC 2018-10-01 17:00:00 UTC The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom EH9 3JN Genomics Bioinformatics Edinburgh Genomics Donald Dunbar - [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsGenomicsLinux
