Bioinformatics Data Skills: Reproducible and Robust Research with Open Source Tools

Bioinformatics Data Skills: Reproducible and Robust Research with Open Source Tools

Vince Buffalo


This functional e-book teaches the talents that scientists desire for turning huge sequencing datasets into reproducible and strong organic findings. Many biologists commence their bioinformatics education via studying scripting languages like Python and R along the Unix command line. yet there is a large hole among realizing a couple of programming languages and being ready to research quite a lot of organic data.
instead of train bioinformatics as a collection of workflows which are prone to swap with this swiftly evolving box, this booklet demsonstrates the perform of bioinformatics via information talents. Rigorous evaluate of knowledge caliber and of the effectiveness of instruments is the root of reproducible and powerful bioinformatics research. via open resource and freely to be had instruments, you are going to examine not just the way to do bioinformatics, yet find out how to process difficulties as a bioinformatician.
  • Go from dealing with small issues of messy scripts to tackling huge issues of shrewdpermanent equipment and instruments
  • Focus on high-throughput (or "next generation") sequencing facts
  • Learn facts research with glossy tools, as opposed to overlaying older theoretical recommendations
  • Understand the right way to decide on and enforce the easiest instrument for the task
  • Delve into equipment that result in more straightforward, extra reproducible, and strong bioinformatics research
