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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
