Addressing the digital divide in contemporary biology: Lessons from teaching UNIX
Researchers in the biomedical sciences increasingly rely on applications that lack a graphical interface and require inputting code that, such as UNIX. Scientists who are not trained in computer science face an enormous challenge in analyzing the high-throughput data their research groups generate. We present a training model for use of command-line tools when the learner has little to no prior knowledge of UNIX.
