Linux Training Course for Life Science Researchers
3rd Jul 2019 - 5th Jul 2019
Dear ACGT Community
The Africa Centre for Gene Technologies (ACGT), in conjunction with the University of Pretoria’s Centre for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB), is organizing a Linux Training Course for Life Science Researchers from the 03 – 05 July 2019 at the University of Pretoria, Hatfield campus. The ACGT has organized this workshop because of the awareness of the advancements in sequencing platforms and the amount of data generated. Linux is not only a useful alternative operating system for data analysis and visualization; but is also a key requirement for some future ACGT workshops that require background in coding such as the RNA-Sequencing and Transcriptomics workshops. The course will provide a jump-start into the use of the Linux terminal and teach delegates to perform tasks that are critical for effective use of Linux by any user.
The topics outlined below will be covered during the course:
· The shell
· The file system
· Files and directories
· Find files
· Basic system commands
· Redirection with command and file pipes
· Basic Grep, sed and awk
· Environment variables
· Basic shell scripts.
The course will be facilitated by Mr Shaheem Sadien from the Cisco Networking Academy at CPUT. Mr Sadien is a renowned lecturer and skilled technician with a wealth of over 13 years of experience and knowledge on networking, operating systems and applications. Below are some testimonials from those who have attended this course before:
