Introduction to Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Data
10/27/2014 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm, HSL - 307

This class provides an introduction to use and analysis of high throughput sequencing data. This session will include both an overview of the concepts behind the analyses and practical application with an example data set.

An account on the “Kure” Linux cluster (managed by ITS-Research Computing) is REQUIRED for this class. Instructions for requesting a “Kure” account are available at this link: http://help.unc.edu/help/getting-started-on-kure/#P24_1521. Please submit your account request at least 3-4 days before class. It generally takes 24-48 hours for account creation.

Prerequisites: For those unfamiliar with UNIX and Kure/UNC computer cluster usage, UNIX for Biologists, Part 1 and UNIX for Biologists, Part 2 are highly recommended preparation/prerequisites for this class.

Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 1
11/10/2014 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.

Introduction to UNIX for Biologists, Part 2
11/12/2014 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 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.
