Basic Unix/Linux and compute cluster usage


The field of bioinformatics is rooted in UNIX/Linux. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate basic UNIX commands, and how to use LUNARC to store data and run jobs (such as sequence alignment) using the queuing system.

Topics include

  • Navigating folders and listing files
  • Making and deleting folders
  • Copying/Moving data
  • Finding files
  • Searching for expressions in files from the command line, and joining files together
  • Compressing and extracting files
  • Getting data to Lunarc using sftp
  • Connecting to Lunarc via Thinlinc
  • Using the module system to load software
  • Setting up a job and submitting it to the queue

The detailed schedule will be distributed to accepted participants prior to the start of the workshop.
