Leandro Lima, PhD

Bioinformatician II

Knowing how to use the command line of your computer can save you a lot of time. In this advanced workshop, you will learn how to navigate the Unix terminal, process files, set permissions, etc. The only thing you need is a Mac or Linux laptop (you can use Windows if you can’t access a Linux machine). Topics to be covered include:

  • File manipulation (ls, pwd, mv, mkdir, cat, sort, uniq)
  • File system (which, df, du)
  • Slicing text files (cut, head, tail, split, column)
  • Compression/decompression (tar, gzip, zcat, zless)
  • Other helpful commands (date, echo, alias)
  • System variables ($HOME, $PWD, $USER)
  • and More!

This is an intermediate workshop in the Computer Skills series, and the second of a two-part series. This part will cover more of tar/gzip, cat/cut/head/tail, awk, Perl one-liners, and other more advanced commands

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 throughout the year to enable trainees to gain new skills and get support with their questions and data.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
