  • Using containers in bioinformatics

    25 - 26 March 2021


    Using containers in bioinformatics Are you wondering how your research could benefit from workflow containerisation? Containers enable you to package up an application and its dependencies and encourage reproducibility, portability and shareability of computational workflows. This workshop explores the merits, advantages and limitations of applying containers in bioinformatics. During the workshop you will: - learn and practice the basics of building, deploying and running applications in containers - explore real use cases related to biology - discuss tips and best practices, and have your questions answered. This workshop will be delivered online through a combination of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on interactive exercises supported by containers experts. On day 1 you will learn new skills through undertaking practical exercises and on day 2 you can bring your own pipeline to get advice and tips in a small group setting. **Learning outcomes** By the end of the workshop you should be able to: - Identify when you would benefit from using containers in your workflow - Download container images and run commands from inside a container using Singularity - Identify popular image registries - Discuss the pros & cons of building with Singularity vs Docker - Describe the basic syntax of a Dockerfile - Build and share an image with Docker - Convert a Docker image into the Singularity format **Lead trainer:** TBC **Date/time:** 12:30pm - 4:00pm AEDT/ 11:30am - 3:00pm AEST/ 12:00pm - 3:30pm ACDT / 9:30am - 1:00pm AWST Thursday 25 - Friday 26 March 2021 **Who the workshop is for** Basic familiarity with UNIX shell concepts and command line interactions are required. Participants do not need any previous experience with containers. This workshop is open to staff and students from Australian universities and research institutes. **How to apply** The workshop is free but participation is subject to application with selection. Please note that applications that do not nominate an Australian institute and do not provide an appropriate institutional email address will not be able to take part. Applications will be reviewed by the organising committee and all applicants will be informed of the status of their application (successful, waiting list, unsuccessful) by Friday 19 March 2021. Participants will be provided with a Zoom meeting link closer to the date.

  • WEBINAR: Getting started with containers

    12 May 2021


    WEBINAR: Getting started with containers What are containers? Who uses them? When, and why? You'll hear an expert's overview of using containers on supercomputers and the Cloud, and learn from real life examples of simple, domain-agnostic use. Absolute beginners are welcome to come along and ask the questions you’ve been too embarrassed to ask! This webinar is a collaboration between Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and Australian BioCommons to celebrate Data Science Week. **Presenter:** Dr Sarah Beecroft, HPC Research Fellow, Pawsey Supercomputing Centre **Date/time:** 12 May 2021 - 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 - 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST [**Register here**]( 2021-05-12 12:00:00 UTC 2021-05-12 13:00:00 UTC Australian BioCommons Australia Australia Bioinformatics Computational biology Computer science Australian BiocommonsPawsey Supercomputing Centre Melissa Burke [] BiologistsBioinformaticians 500 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served ContainerssupercomputerCloud computing
