NBAF Bio-Linux Course
This two day course comprises introductory sessions delivered by Tim Booth and Mesude Bicak
from NBAF-W plus invited talks and tutorials from speakers presenting their own bioinformatics
tools in a Bio-Linux environment. It will benefit anyone looking to do bioinformatics work in a Linux environment, in particular anyone working with high throughput sequencing data.
No prior knowledge of Linux is required.
What is Bio-Linux? Bio-Linux 6.0 is a fully featured, powerful, configurable and easy to maintain bioinformatics workstation. Bio-Linux provides more than 500 bioinformatics programs on an Ubuntu
