Introduction to Linux for bioinformatics

This training is intended for all Linux novices who want to learn the basics of Linux without getting too much technical details.
This hands-on training will show you how to effectively use Linux, a free operating system. Bioinformatics depends heavily on Linux-based computers and software. A lot of good scientific software is written specifically for Linux/Unix. Additionally, Linux has most popular programming languages (e.g.Python, Perl, C) already installed and ready to use! Data management happens swiftly with the dedicated text manipulation tools and file system properties. This training will teach you all you need to know to swiftly start using Linux, be it on the server of your department, or on your own computer (even if you're already running Windows or Mac OS).
Prior to the training session, you will receive a poll to ask you your personal goals by following this training sesion. Depending on the outcome, the schedule will be adjusted.

Target audience: Life Science Researchers, PhD students, beginner bioinformaticians
