Course description The growing availability of extremely large datasets requires scientists and analysts to use powerful supercomputers or computer clusters to store, manage, and analyze these data. These clusters typically run on Linux, which requires some programming skills and insights into suitable software packages. Our course will introduce you to programming in a Linux environment, teach you how to efficiently manage very large datasets (e.g. using sed, awk, and grep commands) and create simple shell scripts to analyze your data (e.g. using a Linux version of the freely available statistics program R). You will also learn how to visualize your data and results in customized plots and figures. These skills are extremely valuable for scientists from all disciplines as well as for business practitioners (e.g. consultants or financial analysts) who are planning to work with big data. Students are not required to bring their own laptops, but they are allowed to do so if they wish to work on their own computers.
