we still have 7 spots available for the course "Introduction to Linux and workflows for biologists". https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses/course1/
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. In fact 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.
Dates: 31 July-4 August 2017
Instructor: Dr. Martin Jones (founder, Python for Biologists). Martin started his programming career by learning Perl during the course of his PhD in evolutionary biology, and started teaching other people to program soon after. He is author of two text books, Python for Biologists [http://www.amazon.com/Python-Biologists-complete-programming-beginners/dp/1492346136/] and Advanced Python for Biologists[http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Python-Biologists-Martin-Jones/dp/1495244377/].
We would really appreciate if you can share this information with all those people who may be interested in this course.
Many thanks in advance for your help. Best regards,
