Course begins Tuesday 26 September
9:00 AM
This hands-on 2-day workshop will introduce the Unix Shell -- which provides access to powerful tools for data analysis and manipulation. We'll also get a taste for Git -- a tool for managing your data with 'versioning' and increasing your power to collaborate. And last but not least, we'll dip our toes in R -- gaining access to a flexible environment for data manipulation, visualisation and more! Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. Find more information about the workshop can be found at the Information Page.

This hands-on 2-day workshop will introduce the UNIX Shell -- which provides access to powerful tools for data analysis and manipulation. Students will then learn to use the UNIX shell to connect to JCU's High Performance Research Computer. By the end of the course, students will know how to backup their research data to the HPC, as well as how to automate their workflows with shell scripts. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. Find more information about the workshop can be found at the Information Page

Data Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them to efficiently use computational resources and automate tasks as well. This workshop is designed for those who have PRIOR EXPERIENCE with the UNIX shell. The primary focus of this workshop will be in strengthening UNIX shell skills, connecting to remote compute resources, and automating their Genomic analyses with UNIX shell scripting workflows.
