In the basic bioinformatics course databases and bioinformatics tools were used through the web interfaces. For the analysis of large or repeated datasets, these interfaces are usually not flexible enough and require to much manual work. In this course, the basics of batch processing, scripting and database querying will be tought, and applied in advanced bioinformatics topics, such as datamining.
