UoS course: Best Practices in Research Data Management for Biological Science

Course on research data management from the Sheffield Bioinformatics Core – 30th April:

  • How much data would you lose if your laptop was stolen?
  • Have you ever emailed your colleague a file named ‘final_final_versionEDITED’?
  • Have you ever struggled to import your spreadsheets into R?

As a researcher, you will encounter research data in many forms, ranging from measurements, numbers and images to documents and publications. Whether you create, receive or collect data, you will certainly need to organise it at some stage of your project. This workshop will provide an overview of some basic principles on how we can work with data more effectively. We will discuss the best practices for research data management and organisation so that our research is auditable and reproducible by ourselves, and others, in the future.

UoS Course: Introduction to Unix for Bioinformatics

Intro to Unix course from the Sheffield Bioinformatics Core – 21st May:

Beginners course on the using command line interfaces to perform Bioinformatics Analysis

This course offers an introduction to working with Linux. We will describe the Linux environment so that participants can start to utilize command-line tools and feel comfortable using a text-based way of interacting with a computer. We will take a problem-solving approach, drawing on types of tasks commonly encountered by Linux users when processing text files.
