Being a Bioinformatician means you’ve to deal with huge biological datasets which includes retrieval of such datasets, processing & pre-processing of such datasets on a daily basis. Dealing with huge genomic and proteomic-level data, requires an operating system having the caliber to efficiently retrieve, pre-process and process the biological data. Linux/Unix operating systems are always the first choice of Bioinformaticists to handle and analyze huge biological datasets in a much easier and efficient manner.

BioCode is offering a Fundamentals of Linux Scripting for Bioinformatics course so that you can learn from the basics of biological programming on Linux terminal to efficiently retrieve, manipulate and analyze bioinformatics genomic datasets. Along with this, you’ll learn how to get started with Linux, pre-process biological data and create pipelines to process the datasets. Linux allows you to develop and utilize command line tools for easier and efficient data analysis of biological nature utilizing the command-line interface of Linux/Unix operating systems.

This course is for absolute beginners in bioinformatics scripting and you don’t require any prior knowledge of Linux or even bioinformatics to get started with this course. In Bioinformatics, researchers have to work through a huge set of textual data in the form of CSV files, genomic data, tabular data, etc. Therefore, such biological data analysis can be quickly and easily done using the command line or terminal interface of Linux or Unix operating systems. Moreover, Linux makes automated biological analysis easy by providing the ability to create various pipelines so that you don’t have to write the code again and again.

Performing on Windows or any other operating system.
