Command line basics workshop

July 17, 2022

Command line basics for genomic analysis at OSC

This workshop is focused on building general skills for analyzing genomics data, such as RNAseq, metabarcoding, metagenomic shotgun sequencing, and whole-genome sequencing. We will teach you how to write shell scripts that run command-line programs and submit these scripts to compute nodes at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

The workshop will be held during the afternoons of August 17-19th with in-person instruction on both the Columbus (Mike Sovic, CAPS) and Wooster (Jelmer Poelstra, MCIC) campuses, and a possibility to join via Zoom as well. Attendance is free and anyone affiliated with OSU or Wooster USDA is welcome.
