The purpose of this one-day workshop is intended to introduce Biologists, Chemists and Bioinformaticians to the High Performance Computing facilities at Leeds.
Although it will include material from some other workshops (particularly HPC 1: Introduction to High Performance Computing at Leeds), it’s main purpose is to introduce the range of HPC services at Leeds, how they can be used in Life Sciences research with a specific emphasis on NextGen Sequence analysis.
We will cover:
- Basic command-line Linux
- Using HPC for large-scale computing
- Choosing and installing codes and applications
- Running codes and applications through the batch scheduler
- Data storage and management
- Visualising data in R and Python
- Life science and Bioinformatics software and libraries (using R and Python)
- Automating analysis pipelines using the command-line shell and Snakemake
This is a hands-on workshop and is intended for High Performance Computing “novices” and advanced skills are NOT required.
A working knowledge of Unix is helpful but not necessary; we don’t expect that you already have experience using HPC.
This workshop usually runs twice each academic year
All research staff and students
This workshop is booked through the IT Training Unit
