Workshop: Introduction to Unix and RNAseq processing

Most bioinformatics tools are designed to be run from the command line hence the ability to run simple command line programs is an essential bioinformatics skill. This workshop will familiarise you with the basics of the Unix command line interface. We will show you how to navigate the file structure, run simple programs with arguments and open files. To keep it relevant to bioinformatics, we will demonstrate the samtools program and learn how to peer inside a BAM file

Key words: Unix; computing basics; RNAse

Requirements: You will need to bring your own laptop.

Relevance: This workshop is relevant to students without any experience of the Unix command line who would like to gain a basic understanding of the Unix environment
