+
+Having a new student join me to work in the lab reminded me that I
+should collect some of the many resources around for getting started
+in bioinformatics and any data-based science in general. So towards
+this end, one of the first essential tools for any data scientist is a
+knowledge of [git](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software)).
+
+Start first with [https://try.github.io/levels/1/challenges/1](Code
+School's simple introduction to git) which gives you the basics of
+using git from the command line.
+
+Then, check out
+[set of lectures on Git and GitHub](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5-da3qGB5IBLMp7LtN8Nc3Efd4hJq0kD)
+which goes into setting up git and using it with github. This is a set
+of lectures which was used in a Data Science course.
+
+Finally, I'd check out
+[the set of resources on github](https://help.github.com/articles/good-resources-for-learning-git-and-github/)
+for even more information, and then learn to love the
+[git manpages](https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git.html).
