This intermediate-level book teaches the general computational and data skills you need to analyze biological data. If you have experience with a scripting language like Python, you\'re ready to get started. Go from handling small problems with messy scripts to tackling large problems with clever methods and tools Process bioinformatics data with powerful Unix pipelines and data tools Learn how to use exploratory data analysis techniques in the R language Use efficient methods to work with genomic range data and range operations Work with common genomics data file formats like FASTA, FASTQ, SAM, and BAM Manage your bioinformatics project with the Git version control system Tackle tedious data processing tasks with with Bash scripts and Makefiles.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Copyright; Table of Contents; Preface; The Approach of This Book; Why This Book Focuses on Sequencing Data; Audience; The Difficulty Level of Bioinformatics Data Skills; Assumptions This Book Makes; Supplementary Material on GitHub; Computing Resources and Setup; Organization of This Book; Code Conventions; Conventions Used in This Book; Using Code Examples; Safari\u00AE Books Online; How to Contact Us; Acknowledgments; Part I.
