Intro to Unix Command Line
- Gladstone Data Science Training Program
Knowing how to use the command line puts you in the driver’s seat of your computer and can save you a lot of time. In this workshop, discover the basics you need to navigate the Unix terminal.
You will learn:
- File manipulation (ls, pwd, mv, mkdir, cat, sort, uniq)
- File systems (which, df, du)
- Slicing text files (cut, head, tail, split, column)
- Compression and decompression (tar, gzip, zcat, zless)
- Other helpful commands (date, echo, alias)
- System variables ($HOME, $PWD, $USER)
Bring your Mac or Linux laptop (you can use Windows if you can’t access a Linux machine).
Open to the Gladstone and UCSF community.
The Gladstone Data Science Training Program was started in 2018 to provide trainees with learning opportunities and hands-on workshops to improve their skills in bioinformatics and computational analysis. This program offers a series of workshops through the year to enable trainees to gain new skills and get support with their questions and data.
