This workshop is based on the Software Carpentry Lesson on the Unix Shell. The Unix shell is a powerful tool that allows users to perform simple tasks, including managing data. In recent years, basic programming skills such as Unix shell have become vital for biomedical research.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Access a remote Unix machine through the Center for Research Computing – HTC Cluster
  • Use basic Unix commands for navigating and working with files and directories
  • Generate MD5SUMs for data upload to NCBI GEO
  • Transfer files using FTP client software
  • Access HTC Cluster-installed open-source bioinformatics software packages

You must sign up for a Center for Research Computing HPC allocation prior to attending this workshop.
