I have recently started a computer users group at out Lab with the aim of
increasing the computing skills of some of our scientists. One of the major
problems that we have is countering the fears of newcomers to UNIX type
systems. We have access to GCG software (not using x-windows) and basic
manuals but due to this fear GCG is only being utilised by a few scientists.
What we really need is a basic step by step manual guiding beginners through
some of the basic tasks like multiple alignments and database searching. Has
anyone produced, or know of someone who has produced such a guide. I
would be very grateful for any information.
