UNIX is a family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems. UNIX has a reputation for stability, security, and scalability, making it a popular choice for scientific computation. The basic design philosophy of UNIX is to provide simple, powerful tools that can be combined to perform complex tasks. It features a command-line interface that allows users to interact with the system through a series of commands, rather than through a graphical user interface (GUI).

Unix / Linux is very useful to perform variety of tasks/ run bioinformatics applications to solve biological problems. Handling larger files, performing text manipulation, information extraction etc were never so easy without Unix/Linux operating systems.

Our Unix Operating System training module comprises a comprehensive curriculum which enables you to understand and use basic commands to solve complex biological problems. It also enables  you to develop wrappers in the form of computational pipelines where you can easily automate the whole process in one click.
