Knowing how to use the command line of your computer can save you a lot of time. In this workshop, you will learn how to navigate the Unix terminal. 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)
Novice Level: This is an introductory workshop in the Computer Skills series. No prior experience required. No prerequisites.
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.
