HSLS MolBio Workshops

Information & resources for hands-on bioinformatics classes.


This hands-on workshop will teach how to (1) access a remote Unix machine (Center for Research Computing- HTC Cluster) using a text-based terminal, (2) use basic Unix commands for managing files and directories, and (3) access HTC Cluster-installed open-source bioinformatics software packages such as STAR, HISAT, GATK, and Kallisto.

You must sign up for a Center for Research Computing HPC allocation.

This workshop is based on the Software Carpentry Lesson on the Unix Shell.

Target Audience

Experimental biologists seeking to analyze next-generation sequencing data generated through experiments or retrieved from a repository such as GEO.
