We are inviting our users to a training workshop aimed at giving participants experience on a range of approaches. These will include use of basic UNIX, basic NGS analysis (bacterial genome assembly) and gene prediction as well as guidance on best practice in using our cluster (Marvin). At the end of the course, participants will understand how to connect, navigate, view files on Marvin, how to write basic shell scripts, submit batch jobs and launch interactive multi-core shell sessions. Exercise material will be available and downloaded during the training.
