What higher-level computational skills can be used in bioinformatics research?

Learning Objectives

  • Use a spreadsheet to perform simple data analysis.
  • Use a spreadsheet to open, read, parse, modify and output comma-separate (.csv) files that will be ready to use in subsequent tools.
  • Perform elementary statistical analysis on an “omics” dataset (e.g. using Excel or Weka).
  • Perform Input/Output with data files.
  • Interact with remote servers.
  • Construct a bioinformatics pipeline.
  • Use open source libraries and packages (e.g., BioPerl, Biopython, R, BioConductor).
  • Use programs at the Unix/Linux command line to analyze bioinformatics data.
  • Use graph theory to represent data networks.
