Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Bioinformatics is vital for the analysis, interpretation, and visualisation of biological data. And the Linux command line, bash scripting and R are among the most powerful tools available to bioinformaticians. This exciting, interactive course provides an introduction to all three. We will demonstrate how, with a few simple commands, Linux can be used to analyse and transform your own data. We’ll then walk through the basic steps of bash scripting together, moving from running commands one by one on the command line, to writing scripts which will run them for you. Along the way, you’ll discover bash scripting, almost endless capabilities for processing big data. You’ll start to find them as central to your day to day analyses as they are to me.
Skip to 0 minutes and 48 seconds We will also take you through the basics of analysing and visually representing your data by using R. Thanks to its ease of use and power, R extening now into many fields. And the number of R users worldwide is rapidly growing. By learning R with us, you’ll start on your path to performing and visually representing the analysis of your own data. So join us as we explore the ways in which the command line, bash scripting, and R can unleash the full power of bioinformatics.
