+ - Teaching Bioinformatics on Raspberry Pi->

Submitted by danudwary
danudwary (201586) writes "From the article: "Teaching bioinformatics at universities is complicated by typical computer classroom settings. As well as running software locally and online, students should gain experience of systems administration. For a future career in biology or bioinformatics, the installation of software is a useful skill. We propose that this may be taught by running the course on GNU/Linux running on inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer hardware, for which students may be granted full administrator access. We release 4273, an operating system image for Raspberry Pi based on Raspbian Linux. This includes minor customisations for classroom use and includes our Open Access bioinformatics course, 4273 Bioinformatics for Biologists." While I taught my classes in the past with virtualization, this might be a better option, particularly in the value of making programming or methodological inefficiencies more obvious."
