  • Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019

    16 September 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/getting-started-with-the-de-nbi-cloud-gcb-2019 Educators: Alexander Sczyrba, Peter Belmann, Sebastian Jünemann, Jan Krüger, Alex Walender (BiGi) Location: Heidelberg GCB Date: 16th September Content: The need for high-throughput data analysis has grown tremendously since the introduction of next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. The massive amount of data produced creates a new class of resource barriers to be overcome including limited bandwidth, storage volume and compute power. Small research labs can hardly cope with the data generated. A solution to the mere resource problem are cloud computing environments as virtually unlimited and flexible resources. The de.NBI Cloud is a full academic cloud federation, providing compute and storage re-sources free of charge for academic users. It provides a powerful IT infrastructure in combination with flexible bioinformatics workflows and analysis tools to the life science community in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud offers reliable IT security concepts and user access rules to en-sure secure data access and storage. It closes the gap of missing computational resources for life science researchers in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud project started in 2016 as collaboration between the universities of Bielefeld, Freiburg, Gießen, Heidelberg and Tübingen. The close cooperation with the ELIXIR cloud ensures the connectivity and sustainability in the international context. The de.NBI Cloud operates the major service levels: • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) suited for experienced power users that want full control over the compute environment; plain access to virtualized infrastructure • Platform as a Service (PaaS) suited for experienced users who utilize fully configured infrastructure for the deployment of custom workflows • Software as a Service (SaaS) suited for users without cloud experience who can use virtual machines (VMs) of pre-configured, state-of-the-art analysis tools and pipelines Cloud computing requires initial efforts and skills to port existing workflows to these new mod-els. The same holds true for emerging programming models. Cloud environments can be difficult to use by scientists with little system administration and programming skills. Challenges exist in managing cloud environments as there is a lack of tools which simplify accessing and using these environments and helping bootstrap users by providing basic software stacks. Keywords: OpenStack, Cloud Computing, virtual machines (VMs) Tools: OpenStack, BiBiGrid Prerequisites: The participants should bring their own laptop computers. The goal of the tutorial is to provide a fundamental introduction to the underlying OpenStack infrastructure. Target audience are bioinformaticians or experienced computational data analysts who would like to utilize scalable and flexible cloud resources for their research. Participants will learn how to setup a cloud project and work with virtual instances, and how to efficiently utilize cloud computing resources. We will also address networking and security issues, demonstrate how to deploy bioinformatics tools in the cloud, and how to set up a customized compute cluster in a cloud environment using BiBiGrid. All topics will be covered by short talks and practical hands-on sessions. 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-16 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []

  • ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Distributed Data Analysis - The (Health) Data Train

    10 - 11 October 2019

    Utrecht, Netherlands

    ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Distributed Data Analysis - The (Health) Data Train https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-innovation-and-sme-forum-distributed-data-analysis-the-health-data-train The Innovation and SME Forum on 10-11 October with a focus on “distributed data analysis - the (health) data train” in Utrecht is open to researchers working in the data driven life-science sector, large and small companies that develop services for data management and sharing, as well as people involved in national healthcare initiatives and anyone else who is interested in learning more about data-driven innovation in the life-science sector. The concept of distributed data analysis as contained in the FAIR Data Train approach has been endorsed by the Dutch government in a letter to the Dutch Parliament in December 2018. Meanwhile, the Dutch Government is preparing to implement this novel strategy in the Dutch health care information system. This signals the emerging market for FAIR-based distributed analysis approaches beyond the science domain. The ELIXIR-NL public-private network is closely involved in specification and implementation.      This event contains a mix of high-level keynote speakers and interactive sessions to discuss and interact with other companies and ELIXIR partners. A specific session with Flash Talks, will give SMEs and Start-Ups the chance to introduce their work to a broad audience. This event is a collaborative effort, organised by ELIXIR Netherlands (DTL) in collaboration with several DTL SME partners. More generally, the event aims to inform about ELIXIR resources and create a space to network for industry and academia.   What people think about previous events: "The ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum was a great opportunity for us to interact with ELIXIR and also other SME organisations to share ideas and better understand how ELIXIR together with small and large companies can help bridging the "digital islands" of information and provide true value for life science stakeholders, researchers and in the ned, the patients." - Henrik Plym-Forshell, BC Platforms, Sweden     2019-10-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 00:00:00 UTC Jongerius Kantoor - Villa Jongerius, Utrecht, Netherlands Jongerius Kantoor - Villa Jongerius Utrecht Netherlands 3527 [] [] [] [] [] []
  • Software Carpentry Workshop

    16 - 18 October 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Software Carpentry Workshop https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/software-carpentry-workshop-ab3af408-aa91-49ed-bab2-5db1f2e6d15d Educators: Malvika Sharan, Georg Zeller, Mike Smith, Thomas Schwarzl, Frank Thommen (HD-HuB), Holger Dinkel Date: 16-10-2019 - 18-10-2019 09:00-18:00 Location: ATC Computer Training Lab, EMBL Heidelberg Contents: Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever-growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This course provides training in several key tools, with a focus on good development practices that encourage efficient and reproducible research computing. Topics covered include: Introduction to Python scripting Introduction to the Unix shell and usage of cluster resources Version control with Git and Github Analysis pipeline management Scientific Python & working with biological data Literate programming with Jupyter notebooks Learning goals: This course aims to teach software writing skills and best practices to researchers in biology who wish to analyse data, and to introduce a toolset that can help them in their work. The goal is to enable them to be more productive and to make their science better and more reproducible. Prerequisites: This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will be familiar with some command line/programmatic computer usage, will want to become more confident using these tools efficiently and reproducibly. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable using git). Keywords: Programming; Command Line; Version Control; Bioinformatics; Data Analysis; Cluster Computing Tools: Python; Bash; Unix/Linux; Git; GitHub; SnakeMake; Biopython; Pandas; Numpy; SciPy; Matplotlib 2019-10-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-18 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI / ELIXIR Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
