HBC ‘Upcoming Current Topics in Bioinformatics’ Workshop – 4/17

hbc logoThe Harvard Bioinformatics Core is  excited to announce the next workshop in our Spring 2024 series: “Big data? Big computer! The skill set you need to succeed”: Needle in a Haystack – Finding and summarizing data from colossal files.

This workshop is part of our Current Topics in Bioinformatics  series and is a free, hands-on workshop available to all Harvard affiliates. Foundation – Basic shell, or a working knowledge of Shell, is a pre-requisite for this workshop.

Wednesday, April 17  |  1-4pm.
Free to all Harvard affiliates

Needle in a Haystack – Finding and summarizing data from colossal files: Manipulating large files in a compute cluster environment (such as HMSRC’s O2 cluster) is a key bioinformatics skill. In this workshop we introduce participants to a handful of command-line utilities for data wrangling in shell. Participants will learn to grab information with ‘grep’ and use regular expressions to widen their searches. Then we will get into more complex file manipulations and data summarizing with sed and awk. This intermediate shell workshop builds upon the basic shell skills learned in The Foundation – Basic Shell. This workshop will not be taught on the O2 cluster, rather commands will be demonstrated in a local laptop setting.
