This tutorial will provide an introduction to the Linux operating system, with particular attention paid to working from the command line. The tutorial will cover basics such as fundamental commands, editing files, understanding directories and permissions, and remote access.
This two part tutorial will first introduce you to the concept of interactive high performance computing, as distinct from batch computing. We will cover the Citrix (Windows) and NICE EnginFrame (Linux) interactive computing environments hosted by MSI.
Python is a modern general purpose programming language that is popular in scientific computing for its readable syntax and extremely rich ecosystem of scientific and mathematical modules.
The RNA-Seq analysis tutorials includes two lectures and two hands-on guided tutorials. The lecture materials cover the basics of differential expression analysis and touches on other RNA-seq topics such as transcriptome assembly.
This hands-on tutorial will introduce users to MSI systems by taking them though the quality control and trimming steps needed for Illumina sequencing data.
This is a practical, hands-on tutorial designed to give participants experience with RNA-Seq data analysis using Tophat, Cufflinks, and CummRbund in Galaxy. The analysis in this tutorial is typical of experiments in eukaryotic species with high-quality genomes and genome annotation available.
This hands-on tutorial will cover installation and use of the SMRT portal at MSI to analyze PacBio sequencing data. The basics of full genome assembly and transcript assembly will be covered.
