Introduction to UNIX and RNA-Seq Analysis Workshop

This two-day hands-on workshop will cover how to efficiently manage and analyze data using the command line interface and high-performance computing (HPC). All hands-on activities will be performed in the context of an RNA-Seq workflow.<

Learning to use the command line interface and HPC are critical for researchers looking to improve efficiency when performing computational tasks. These skills also form the foundation of high-throughput sequencing data analysis, and knowing how to use these tools will be necessary for analyzing your own sequencing data. In this workshop, researchers who want to perform computational tasks more efficiently and/or who want to build a foundation for analyzing sequencing data will learn the basics of Unix/Linux, will gain experience using the HMS compute cluster, Orchestra, and will learn how to automate repetitive tasks using an RNA-Seq workflow.
