Count all the concepts introduced in Genetics 2410. There are over 500!

cat *.txt | wc
    525    1266   11355

The concepts are burried in PDFs which is typically difficult for computer programs to read. Therefore we first convert the PDFs into XML, and then parse the XML using Python. To do both, at the command-line simply run:

make

Now we can see the list of concepts using:

cat *.txt
You can’t perform that action at this time.
