Data Carpentry--Introduction to the Command Line for Genomics (Session 1 of 2)

-Faculty -Graduate Students -Postdocs -Staff -Undergraduate Students

Command line interface (OS shell) and graphic user interface (GUI) are different ways of interacting with a computer’s operating system. The shell is a program that presents a command line interface which allows you to control your computer using commands entered with a keyboard instead of controlling graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with a mouse/keyboard combination.

This lesson in how to use the command line assumes no prior experience with the tools covered in the workshop. However, learners are expected to have some familiarity with biological concepts, including the concept of genomic variation within a population. Participants should plan to participate actively.

David Molik is a PhD student in Computational Biology. David is interested in the factors that affect microbial communities’ diversity over time. David writes new software, as well as uses experimental systems. David also researches computational methods in general ecological data, specifically within Metabarcoding, which is the idea of using a single gene region to parse out which species are in a sample, working out how to associate community structure with the environment, and looking at rare and pathogenic species in large amounts of data.
