    The workshop is presented by Aditya Kalavagunta from COMSOL.


    The first portion of the workshop provides an overview of COMSOL Multiphysics:
    Its capabilities, new features, enhanced functionality, and revamped graphical user interface. We will examine the model-builder-based interface which, in addition to heightened efficiency, provides new functionality to modify and quickly adapt models. A live example will be shown exemplifying both the speed and ease of the new work flow. New modules will also be looked at.



    The second half of the workshop is a hands-on tutorial in COMSOL Multiphysics. A hands-on tutorial lets you set up a first model using fast-results application interfaces. Please consider contacting Aditya Kalavagunta aditya@comsol.com with a short description of your application/interests in advance of the workshop.



    Attendees will receive a 2-week free trial to use COMSOL Multiphysics. If you bring your own laptop, you can use this trial for the hands-on session. Alternatively you can use the lab computers provided by MSI.

    Partek Genomics Suite (PGS) allows users to analyze all manner of microarray data, from gene expression to ChIP-chip and DNA methylation. PGS includes powerful statistics and interactive visualizations to explore your data and built in workflows geared towards common analyses. This morning session will be an overview of PGS as well as a demonstration of the gene expression workflow. This session will also be webcast via UMconnect.


    MSI will no longer support Genedata or the OmicOffice suit of tools in within Spotfire. If you currently use Genedata or Spotfire to analyze your microarray data you will want to attend this session to learn how to use PGS to analyze your microarray data.

    This webinar will provide an overview of the AMBER Molecular Dynamics Software package with focus on what is new with regards to GPU acceleration in the recently released version 14. This includes details of peer-to-peer support and optimizations, which have resulted in version 14 being the fastest MD software package on commodity hardware. Benchmarks will be provided, along with recommended hardware choices. In addition, an overview of the new GPU centric features in AMBER 14 will be covered, including support for multi-dimensional replica exchange MD, hydrogen mass repartitioning, accelerated MD, Scaled MD, and support-as-a-service on Amazon Web Services. This is a joint webinar by Ross C. Walker, University of California San Diego, Scott Le Grand, Amazon Web Services, and Adrian Roitberg, University of Florida.

    Python is a general purpose programming language with a rich syntax and structure. You can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity relative to programming with other languages. Python has many modules specializing in various topics of interest to the scientific community and is used as an interface for numerous scientific packages.


    The morning section will provide an introduction to Python. Simple and advanced data types, variable assignment, control structures, mathematical and logical operators, program input and output, and functional programming will be discussed.


    The afternoon section will cover advanced features of Python relevant to high performance computing. Topics will include efficient data processing with NumPy and Scipy, data visualization, and techniques for using python to drive parallel supercomputing tasks.

    This is a practical, hands-on tutorial designed to give participants experience analyzing next-generation sequence (NGS) data in Galaxy. Attendees will learn how to access their UMGC sequence datasets in Galaxy using Data Libraries, how to evaluate sequence quality using FastQC, and how to correct quality issues using trimming and filtering tools. These are the initial steps required for any NGS experiment, including RNA-Seq analysis or variant discovery. Attendees will also learn about data sharing and workflow building in Galaxy.
