Manipulating CSV plain text data at the command line

// Fri September 11 2009

In this video I'm showing how a spread sheet of amino acid data can be converted to comma separated value (CSV) format. The amino acid data is then searched using grep to find for the entry for cysteine. AWK is used to sort by carbon content. Finally I use the R language to create histograms and x/y plots of the data.
