Tutorial Details: Timelogic DeCypher System for Bioinformatics

Date: Thursday, September 11, 2008, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Zheng Jin Tu, MSI

The Timelogic DeCypher system implements configurable-computing technology in a unique hardware and software system. It dramatically accelerates computationally intensive bioinformatics algorithms, including BLAST, Smith-Waterman, and HMM analysis.

This tutorial will first introduce the Web interface to the Timelogic DeCypher system. Then we will focus on the Command Line Interface (CLI) to Timelogic DeCypher, including how to create a target database, submit a search job, and retrieve results.

Prerequisites: Basic biology concepts
