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.
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.
IPA is a powerful analysis and search tool that uncovers the significance of omics data and identifies new targets or candidate biomarkers within the context of biological systems.
Deep Learning has emerged as an important new tool for a range of research applications. Emerging programs such as Caffe and Tensorflow are available at MSI and can be executed on Nvidia GPU resources.
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.
