  • Linux for Genomics

    20 January 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Linux for Genomics https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/linux-for-genomics-04835f08-3c91-4dc6-be5c-9ccb661c495e 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). 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC 2017-01-20 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinux
  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    24 - 28 April 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to customise their environment and automate many parts of the bioinformatics workflow. This course will introduce the Linux command line environment from scratch and teach students how to make the most of its tools to achieve a high level of productivity when working with biological data. 2017-04-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-04-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] BioinformaticsLinuxWorkflows

  • Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4

    10 - 12 December 2019

    Elixir node event
    Introductory Linux Tutorial for Life Sciences 4 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introductory-linux-tutorial-for-life-sciences-4 NBIS (the Swedish node of ELIXIR) and ELIXIR Slovenia are offering an "Introduction to Linux" course targeted at life scientists who want to extend their skills and knowledge. Big data (usually in the form of large text files) are generated nowadays in many fields of science. Trying to handle this data with applications like Word or Excel is difficult or impossible, while using the Linux command line can improve data processing efficiency. Unix/Linux provides an excellent computing environment for several disciplines (such as bioinformatics, physics, engineering) and the command line interpreter (shell) serves as an interface to many big-data processing programs. The course provides a basic introduction to Unix/Linux commands and covers how Unix/Linux commands can be used to manage and inspect your data and results, and how to generate and run pipelines and workflows using basic shell scripting. Finally, we will show you how the command line is used for access to supercomputers for boosting your scientific research. Participants will be able to attend the course either by traveling to Stockholm or to Umeå in Sweden, to Ljubljana in Slovenia, or by connecting remotely via the ELIXIR Slovenia eLearning Platform (EeLP). The number of remote students is limited to 30. The number of students per classroom is limited to 15 for Stockholm and Umeå, and 20 for Ljubljana. Additional participants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as space becomes available. The course will be broadcast from Sweden. 2019-12-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-12-12 17:00:00 UTC ELIXIR Sweden (NBIS) and ELIXIR Slovenia Bioinformatics Computer science NBISUniversity of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine [] Life Science ResearchersbioinformaticiansBiophysicistsengineers [] [] life sciences LinuxUnixEeLPeLearningCommand line
