C7. Use command-line bioinformatics tools and write simple computer scripts: Most biological datasets (e.g., genomic and proteomic sequences, BLAST results, RNASeq and resulting differential expression data) are available as text files; the most powerful and dynamic way to interact with these datasets is through the command line or shell scripting. Students should be able to manipulate their own data and to create and modify complex data processing and analysis workflows.
