Course: Introduction to Unix for Next Generation Sequencing

Unfortunately, the following course has booked out. We plan on running a similar course later in the year, so please contact bioinformatics@st-andrews.ac.uk to express your interest.

We are running a half-day practical training course called Introduction to Unix for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in St Andrews at the Swallowgate computer classroom from 9am to 1pm on Thurs 20 April 2017. This is a highly practical course and aims to give participants experience of using the Unix command-line to solve some common NGS data-handling problems. At the end of the course, they will understand how to connect, navigate, access, view and organise their data in an efficient manner using the command-line.

This course accommodates those who were not able to attend a course on the same subject we held on 6th October 2016 and also to prepare those who would like to attend the RNASeq course 8 days later but have never used Unix before.

The instructors shall be Joseph Ward and Ramon Fallon of the St Andrews Bioinformatics Unit, with some potential assistance from colleagues at the Scottish Oceans Institute and is free of charge for University of St Andrews students and staff.

The programme for the half-day may be found here.
