Topics and schedule

Length: The course takes three hours.



Participants must have an account on "Mendel". The GMI IT department is notified in advance so no action is needed from the participants.

Because "Mendel" can be accessed only through the command line, familiarity with basic UNIX commands such as ls, cd, cp, pwd is required.

This is a hands-on course. Participants must bring a laptop with them. Under Windows, they must have the PuTTY remote login utility installed. Linux or Mac computers already have the necessary tools to connect to Mendel, so no extra software installation is necessary.
