If you are new to bioinformatics this is the best place to start.
This hands-on tutorial will help a new user understand how to use the the Galaxy platform to analyze NGS data by working though the quality control steps needed for Illumina sequencing data.
MSI has deployed a cloud service for research computing called Stratus. In its initial iteration, Stratus is designed expressly to satisfy the requirements set forth by the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy for data from the Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (i.e., dbGaP data).
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.
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 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.
