Participants will learn to use a Linux based operating system, including basic commands to navigate the system, cleaning/extracting and transforming data, installing and configuring bioinformatics software, learning to setup basic bioinformatic pipelines, learning to program in Linux etc.


Linux is easy, powerful, flexible, secure and cost effective. Linux is ubiquitous, it runs the Android operating system and a whole lot of other smart electronic devices. The world literally runs on Linux for several reasons…. Linux gives the freedom that is needed for the researchers to implement ideas/thoughts/solutions to solve real world problems. This training is fully biologist friendly, taught by-the-biologists to-the-biologists.
