The purpose of this one-day workshop is 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.
At the end of the workshop, attendees will be able to:
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 workshop usually runs twice each academic year
