  • [ONLINE] Heterogeneous computing with performance modelling @ SNIC

    4 - 5 November 2020

    [ONLINE] Heterogeneous computing with performance modelling @ SNIC https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-heterogeneous-computing-with-performance-modelling-snic Modern high core count CPUs and accelerators, such as GPUs, have been shown to provide significant performance benefits in many different applications. However, for a novice, or even for a moderately experienced scientist or programmer, it is not always clear which applications could potentially benefit from these resources and which do not. For example, a Nvidia V100 GPU can perform artificial intelligence (AI) related computations in a fraction of the time it takes a regular CPU to perform the same computations but ill-informed OpenACC compiler pragmas can actually make a code run slower. Why is this? When should one invest time in parallelization and/or GPU-acceleration? How much speedup can be expected with a given application? The main goal of this two-day course is to start answering these questions. The course also covers the basics of GPU programming and aims to provide the necessary information for avoiding the most common pitfalls. More information, schedule, and registration can be found on the course webpage at HPC2N, Umeå University. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1064/ 2020-11-04 08:00:00 UTC 2020-11-05 16:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

As formulated in current funding policies, research data should be published under consideration of the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) data principles. Contrarily, they remain frequently unpublished due to organizational reasons or missing infrastructures. Therefore, the reproducibility and the preservation of research data depend on the scientists or the journal to which they want to publish their results. The eDAL-PGP repository provide a powerful infrastructure to easily share and publish comprehensive and cross-domain plant research data. Learning goals: The major goal of this trainings course is to get a general understanding how to publish plant research data that do not fit into the scope of existing databases in a FAIR way by using the eDAL-PGP repository. Prerequisites: The training course is designed for early career scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also for experienced scientists who want to learn more about the analysis and handling of sequence data for complex plant genomes like barley.

    de.NBI Crop Analysis Tool Suite (Part II) training course – Working with repetitive sequences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/de-nbi-crop-analysis-tool-suite-part-ii-training-course-working-with-repetitive-sequences Educator: Sebastian Beier (GCBN) Date: 20th November 2020, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Location: Online Contents: Complex plant genomes impose high demands on analytical software and the knowledge of biologists to interpret these results. The service centre GCBN offers CATS (Crop Analysis Tool Suite), which provides various tools for sequence analysis. In this second of three courses the main focus is on the operation of repeat analysis and masking with the tools Kmasker plants (mathematically defined repeats) and MISA-Web (microsatellites). There will be two short presentations on the two topics and two online live demonstrations with examples. Together the whole training course will last about 90 minutes. Learning goals: The primary objective of this training course is to introduce tools for sequence analysis for crops. The theoretical basics as well as some examples will be shown by using online demonstrations, which will enable the participants to design and perform their own analyses. Prerequisites: The training course is designed for early career scientists such as PhD students and postdocs, but also for experienced scientists who want to learn more about the repeat analysis and masking of sequence data for complex plant genomes.

  • Introduction to the Cloud for Proteomics Analyses

    23 November 2020

    Introduction to the Cloud for Proteomics Analyses https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-the-cloud-for-proteomics-analyses Educators: Dominik Kopczynski, Markus Stepath, Michael Turewicz and Julian Uszkoreit (BioInfra.Prot) Date: Monday, 2020-11-23 Location: online Contents: In this one day course we will show some of BioInfra.Prot's tools provided by de.NBI, namely “PIA - Protein Inference Algorithms”, “BIONDA – A Free Biomarker Database” and “CalibraCurve”. Besides the tool based sessions we offer a "Proteomics in the Cloud" session where we show advantages of cloud based bioinformatics and give a tutorial how to access the de.NBI cloud. PIA allows to inspect and combine the results of proteomics search engines. The main focus lays on the integrated inference algorithms for identification and quantification purposes. BIONDA is a free, up-to-date and user-friendly biomarker and biomarker candidate database that facilitates any kind of research on protein biomarkers and the corresponding diseases. CalibraCurve is a tool intended for the generation of calibration curves in the context of MRM (targeted proteomics) experiments. Such calibration curves are necessary for the selection of suitable transitions. In addition the web service STAMPS will be part of this course. It is a pathway-centric service for the development of targeted proteomics assays. In combination with Skyline, it offers a streamlined pipeline for identification and quantification in targeted proteomics analyses and development of targeted proteomics assays. Learning goals: Attendees of the course will learn how to use the tools PIA, BIONDA, CalibraCurve and STAMPS effectively for their daily proteomics tasks. Additionally they will learn how to use the de.NBI cloud. Prerequisites: This course is for all researches in the field of proteomics. The attendees should have basic knowledge of LC-MS proteomics, but no prior bioinformatics skills are required. Basic knowledge of how to analyse LC-MS data are sufficient. Attendees are required to bring their own laptops. If this is not possible or laptops have very low computing capacities, please contact the organizers.
