On Monday, August 5th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Boaz Goldstein:

    All I really need to know about bioinformatics, I learnt in Haifux


Our new ability to create large amounts of biological data has created 
an abundance of tools to deal with the manipulations and data-mining 
required. however, like every new tool, they have limitations, 
edge-cases, and quirks. I've discovered that sometimes the old ways are 
the best ways. grep, sort, awk, and sed deal very will with large 
data-sets and parallel processing, and I've found that i use them for 
90% of bioinformatic tasks, and quite successfully. I will describe the 
type of problems i am dealing with, and show why shell is the optimal 
solution. a quick genetics intro, in computer terms, will be given, so 
no biological knowledge is needed.


We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
