Introduction to the command-line interface

March 5 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Bioinformatics requires computational resources that go beyond what your laptop has available. To access high performance computing resources, users need to have a working knowledge of the
command line interface (CLI – also referred to as UNIX, bash, shell).

Are you planning to analyze high-throughput sequencing data?
Are you looking to perform computational tasks more efficiently?
Do you want to use local clusters/high-performance computing
environments for your data analysis?
If so, this workshop is for you!

During this hands-on workshop, participants will learn:
• basic shell commands (file system navigation, moving/copying/searching files, etc.)
• how to write shell scripts and use “for” loops for efficiently running the same commands on multiple files
• how to use the HMS-RC cluster for high-performance computing

No prior programming experience required.
Please check link below for eligibility requirements.
This basic workshop is a prerequisite for some HBC advanced workshops (i.e. Intro to Chromatin Biology, etc.)

March 5, 8, and 12, 2024 (9:30am – 12pm each day)
