-We downloaded the yeast genome. This included .fasta files and .gff files (among other files). Learn more about [[https://​genome.ucsc.edu/​FAQ/​FAQformat.html#​format18 | .fasta files]] and [[https://​genome.ucsc.edu/​FAQ/​FAQformat.html#​format3 | .gff files]]. These are two examples of set file types. ​Set file types are very common in bioinformatics. They allow us to standardize information across different experiments,​ publications,​ and users.

 +Standardized file formats are all around us. Try to notice some you encounter on a regular basis. Keep these in mind for next week's enrichment exercises.
  
-Go through some papers in your field. Look at the supplemental datasets available. Are any of these datasets available as text files? What about excel files? Are any files very large? Try to download some of these files and play around with them using the terminal. You can also convert one page of an excel worksheet to a tab-delimited text file. Learn how to do this. +==== Enrichment 4: finding ​text files in publications ====
