Introduction to Unix https://dresa.org.au/materials/introduction-to-unix A hands-on workshop covering the basics of the Unix command line interface. Knowledge of the Unix operating system is fundamental to the use of many popular bioinformatics command-line tools. Whether you choose to run your analyses locally or on a high-performance computing system, knowing your way around a command-line interface is highly valuable. This workshop will introduce you to Unix concepts by way of a series of hands-on exercises. This workshop is designed for participants with little or no command-line knowledge. Tools: Standard Unix commands, FileZilla Topic overview: Section 1: Getting started Section 2: Exploring your current directory Section 3: Making and changing directories Section 4: Viewing and manipulating files Section 5: Removing files and directories Section 6: Searching files Section 7: Putting it all together Section 8: Transferring files Tutorial instructions available here: https://www.melbournebioinformatics.org.au/tutorials/tutorials/unix/unix/ For queries relating to this workshop, contact Melbourne Bioinformatics (bioinformatics-training@unimelb.edu.au).

10 Reproducible Research things - Building Business Continuity https://dresa.org.au/materials/9-reproducible-research-things-building-business-continuity The idea that you can duplicate an experiment and get the same conclusion is the basis for all scientific discoveries. Reproducible research is data analysis that starts with the raw data and offers a transparent workflow to arrive at the same results and conclusions. However not all studies are replicable due to lack of information on the process. Therefore, reproducibility in research is extremely important. Researchers genuinely want to make their research more reproducible, but sometimes don’t know where to start and often don’t have the available time to investigate or establish methods on how reproducible research can speed up every day work. We aim for the philosophy “Be better than you were yesterday”. Reproducibility is a process, and we highlight there is no expectation to go from beginner to expert in a single workshop. Instead, we offer some steps you can take towards the reproducibility path following our Steps to Reproducible Research self paced program.

Data Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/materials/data-storytelling Nowadays, more information created than our audience could possibly analyse on their own! A study by Stanford professor Chip Heath found that during the recall of speeches, 63% of people remember stories and how they made them feel, but only 5% remember a single statistic. So, you should convert your insights and discovery from data into stories to share with non-experts with a language they understand. But how? This tutorial helps you construct stories that incite an emotional response and create meaning and understanding for the audience by applying data storytelling techniques. m.yamaguchi@griffith.edu.au a.miotto@griffith.edu.au data storytelling, data visualisation support masters phd researcher
