Command-line bootcamp: learn the basics of Unix

Here is another contribution that I made to a UC Davis Bioinformatics Workshop that I helped teach last week. Adapting from some our much longer Unix & Perl Primer for Biologists, I made a short bootcamp that aims to teach the basics of the Unix/Linux command-line.

Unlike the Primer material that was written from the point of view of someone using a Mac, the new bootcamp course is written from the viewpoint of someone using Ubuntu Linux. Also, no example files are needed. The course is entirely self-contained and should take 1–3 hours to process (depending on your familiarity with Unix).
