Ideal for biologists preparing to launch into bioinformatics, or those looking to better understand analyses run by collaborators and core specialists, this workshop will cover the basic computational and statistical concepts needed before performing bioinformatics analysis, including:

  • Access to a multi-core Linux server
  • Familiarity with the command line
  • Basic knowledge of how to install software
  • Basic knowledge of R and statistical programming
  • Basic knowledge of Statistics and model building

The course will explore the fundamentals of successful, repeatable bioinformatics analysis:  experimental data organization, basic command line and high performance computing concepts, simple software installations, using help, running applications, building basic pipelines, introduction to R programming, working with data tables and generating figures, basic statistical concepts, and statistical model building. There are no prerequisites for this workshop other than an interest in bioinformatics!
