Our May newsletter includes one new title and updates to three other widely used titles. Seven new workshops and classes are available on the Harvard Longwood campus.
Thanks to all who attended our May workshop: Using BioGrids for RNA-Seq on AWS and your Laptop.
We appreciate your feedback and hope to host more workshops in the future. Toward that end we ask for your input.
BioGrids is considering implementing a weekly rotating workshop series centered on using the Unix command line for bioinformatics. We envision a three part series comprising beginner, intermediate and more advanced topics. Please assist us in creating useful material by answering the one-click survey below.
How likely are you to attend a three part workshop consisting of one hour per week:
Introduction to bash and the Unix command line interface for bioinformatics.
