Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 1
10/9/2014 from 9:00am to 11:00am, HSL - 307

The ability to operate in a command line environment is becoming increasingly valuable in the genomics era. This workshop and the subsequent Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 2 workshop are designed for experimental biologists who want to familiarize themselves with UNIX. This workshop will provide a very basic introduction to the UNIX operating system. Participants will learn how to login (software required/procedure) and interact with a UNIX server. We will cover basic UNIX system commands for interacting with the server and navigating the file system. We will learn about UNIX directory structure organization and file permissions. No prior knowledge of UNIX is required. Participants are expected to have a valid UNC ONYEN. You should request an account on KillDevil and on Kure, both part of the ITS-Research Computing Linux cluster. Instructions for requesting a Killdevil account are available at this link: http://help.unc.edu/help/getting-started-on-killdevil/#P41_2630. Instructions for requesting a Kure account are available at this link: http://help.unc.edu/help/getting-started-on-kure/#P24_1521. Please put your 2 account requests in at least 3-4 days before class. It generally takes 24-48 hours for creation of accounts.

Note: For those unfamiliar with UNIX and Kure/UNC computer cluster usage, this class and UNIX for Biologists, Part 2 are highly recommended preparation/pre-requisites for the next generation sequencing classes to be offered later in this series.

Leveraging citation managers – choosing between EndNote and RefWorks
10/9/2014 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm, Online
See the description for in-class version of "Leveraging citation managers – choosing between EndNote and RefWorks." This is the same class, but participants attend online via Blackboard Collaborate. http://bit.ly/unclib-accelerate-research

Leveraging citation managers – choosing between EndNote and RefWorks
10/9/2014 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm, HSL - 307
Description: This session will compare the benefits and drawbacks of EndNote and RefWorks, two of the largest and most commonly used academic citation managers. This informational session will help participants to decide which tool is best for their project or situation. Topics covered include: -- Managing collections for systematic reviews and other large projects -- Sharing options for groups or teams -- Locating & reviewing full-text from within each software program At the end, participants will have a brief opportunity to explore these tools in a hands-on setting.

Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 2
10/13/2014 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, HSL - 307

The ability to operate in a command line environment is becoming increasingly valuable in the genomics era. This workshop and the earlier Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 1 workshop are designed for experimental biologists who want to familiarize themselves with UNIX. This workshop will introduce UNC resources available to bioscience researchers and will focus primarily on resources on the KillDevil compute cluster operated by UNC ITS-Research Computing. After a quick recap of basic file/folder operations used in a UNIX environment, we will cover how to move files between the server and a local computer. We will introduce the KillDevil and Kure compute clusters and the software used for managing jobs on the cluster. Finally, participants will learn to use two basic bioinformatics tools (NCBI BLAST and UCSC BLAT) on the command line on the KillDevil and Kure clusters. It would be very helpful to attend the Part 1 of this class, if you are not familiar with UNIX. If you are somewhat familiar with UNIX then you could potentially skip attending Part 1.

You will need accounts on KillDevil and on Kure, both part of the ITS-Research Computing Linux cluster. Instructions for requesting a Killdevil account are available at this link: http://help.unc.edu/help/getting-started-on-killdevil/#P41_2630. Instructions for requesting a Kure account are available at this link: http://help.unc.edu/help/getting-started-on-kure/#P24_1521. Please put your 2 account requests in at least 3-4 days before class. It generally takes 24-48 hours for creation of accounts.

Note: For those unfamiliar with UNIX and Kure/UNC computer cluster usage, this class and UNIX for Biologists, Part 1 are highly recommended preparation/prerequisites for the next generation sequencing classes to be offered later in this series.
