Free online course – Bioinformatics for Biologists: An Introduction to Linux, Bash Scripting, and R

November 1 @ 8:00 am December 31 @ 5:00 pm

On this course, you’ll get familiar with Linux – the operating system often used to access and analyse biological data. You’ll come away able to navigate it using the command line, understanding how to write scripts and prepare data files for further analysis and visualisation. Educators from WGC Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences are joined by experts from the Institut Pasteur de Tunis, to give you practical training using real biological data in different biological scenarios. This will help you see how you can work with data in your own field of biology. The course is available online now, lasts 3 weeks of 5 hours study a week but you can learn at your own pace. No prior knowledge of computing or bioinformatics is expected. There are no formal prerequisites but learners should have access to a computer and not just a hand held device.
