NBIS (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden) and Elixir Slovenia are offering an "Introduction to Linux" course targeted at life scientists with no or very little experience in using Linux commands.

The course provides a basic introduction to Unix/Linux commands and covers how Unix/Linux commands can be used to manage and inspect your data and results, and how to generate and run pipelines and work-flows using basic shell scripting. Finally, we will show you how mastering the command line enables you to access supercomputers for boosting your scientific research.

The course is delivered via classroom training with local instructors and via an e-learning platform, thus offering the participants the possibility of attending the course either by joining the class in Umeå, Stockholm, Ljubljana, or Copenhagen, or by connecting remotely via the Elixir Slovenia e-learning platform. The course will be broad-casted from Sweden, Stockholm.

Dates: Tuesday 13 Feb to Thursday 15 Feb 2018, 9 am - 5 pm
