An Introduction to Conda¶
Conda is a very helpful tool for easily installing, managing, and reproducing software environments used in computational workflows, such as high-throughput sequence data processing or downstream data visualization workflows to name a few!
At the end of the lesson, we'll also briefly discuss other useful applications of conda and setting up conda on your own system.
