Unix 201. Advanced Unix for Bioinformatics

Unix is the platform of choice for large-scale Bioinformatics operations. Among other things, Unix 201 describes work-flow operations in a typical high-throughput sequencing center - a fundamental aspect of large-scale sequencing that controls how sequence data is stored, distributed and processed in these centers - and, the biology of the sequencing process itself. Unix 201 can be taken in combination with Perl 201.

Unix for Bioinformatics 201 covers the following topics:

§ Editing and manipulating sequence files with the vi editor

§ FTP and downloading databases from NCBI

§ Unix commands and utilities for sequence analysis

§ Using wild cards with commands

§ File compression and uncompression

§ Process control
