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.
This tutorial will help users learn the basics of compiling and debugging their code on MSI systems. Particular attention will be paid to code written in Fortran, C, and C++. Basic methods for debugging will be outlined, with users being able to explore different debugging tools.
This tutorial will help users learn the basics of parallel computation methods, including strategies for collecting calculations together for parallel execution. A brief description of parallel programming using MPI message passing will be given.
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.
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 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.
