Session Description

This class is offered as part of the 2017 NIH Hour of Code Celebration. Please note, in-person seats are limited to 20 participants but webinar space is unlimited. If the class is on a waitlist, please consider signing up for the webinar option below. 

In this hands-on demonstration, we will utilize the Anaconda python distribution, Jupyter notebook, and python scientific stack to build a reproducible, bioinformatics workflow from scratch. From installation to automation, we will utilize the power of the Jupyter notebook and IPython kernel to seamlessly join a variety of existing components into a fully automated workflow that can be run with a single command. In this hands-on demonstration, we will utilize shell commands, popular bioinformatics applications, the Anaconda installer (conda), and the python programming language and scientific stack to assemble a workflow.

Prerequisites: none

Laptops will be provided for in-person attendees, but if you'd like to follow along by webinar, you should have access to a computer with:

  • A Linux shell;
  • A recent installation of the Anaconda python distribution for python 3.6
