  • Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists

    24 - 28 Apr 2017

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Linux and Workflows for Biologists https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/introduction-to-linux-and-workflows-for-biologists Most high-throughput bioinformatics work these days takes place on the Linux command line. The programs which do the majority of the computational heavy lifting — genome assemblers, read mappers, and annotation tools — are designed to work best when used with a command-line interface. Because the command line can be an intimidating environment, many biologists learn the bare minimum needed to get their analysis tools working. This means that they miss out on the power of Linux to customise their environment and automate many parts of the bioinformatics workflow. This course will introduce the Linux command line environment from scratch and teach students how to make the most of its tools to achieve a high level of productivity when working with biological data. 2017-04-24 00:00:00 UTC 2017-04-28 00:00:00 UTC Edinburgh Genomics The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom The King's Buildings, The University of Edinburgh Edinburgh United Kingdom

  • Node-Level Performance Engineering @ HLRS

    27 - 28 Apr 2017

    Node-Level Performance Engineering @ HLRS https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/node-level-performance-engineering-hlrs-96bdfa8b-30dc-47ac-bdfb-dcfd21aab031 Overview This course teaches performance engineering approaches on the compute node level. "Performance engineering" as we define it is more than employing tools to identify hotspots and bottlenecks. It is about developing a thorough understanding of the interactions between software and hardware. This process must start at the core, socket, and node level, where the code gets executed that does the actual computational work. Once the architectural requirements of a code are understood and correlated with performance measurements, the potential benefit of optimizations can often be predicted. We introduce a "holistic" node-level performance engineering strategy, apply it to different algorithms from computational science, and also show how an awareness of the performance features of an application may lead to notable reductions in power consumption.This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

  • Uncertainty quantification @ MdlS

    2 - 4 May 2017

    Uncertainty quantification @ MdlS https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/uncertainty-quantification-mdls Uncertainty in computer simulations, deterministic and probabilistic methods for quantifying uncertainty, OpenTurns software, Uranie softwareContent Uncertainty quantification takes into account the fact that most inputs to a simulation code are only known imperfectly. It seeks to translate this uncertainty of the data to improve the results of the simulation. This training will introduce the main methods and techniques by which this uncertainty propagation can be handled without resorting to an exhaustive exploration of the data space. HPC plays an important role in the subject, as it provides the computing power made necessary by the large number of simulations needed. The course will present the most important theoretical tools for probability and statistical analysis, and will illustrate the concepts using the OpenTurns software.Course OutlineDay 1 - General methodology for handling uncertainty, presentation of a case study - Fundamental notions from probaility and statistics - General introduction to the software tools: OpenTurns and Uranie  Day 2 - Statistical estimation: parametric and non-parametric, testing - Modeling with non-numerical data: expert judgement, entropy - Central trend: local and gloal sensitivity indices (design of experiments, sampling, Sool indices) - computing the probability of rare events, simulation methods, FORM?SOEM  Day 3 - Distributed computing: parallel solvers, batch jobs submission on a parallel computer, implementation within OpenTurns / Salomeie and Uranie - Introduction to meta-model building, least-squares, other response surface, Krieging, neural networks - Introduction to polynomial chaosLearning outcomes Learn to recognize when uncertainty quantification can bring new insight to simulations. Know the main tools and techniques to investigate uncertainty propagation. Gain familiarity with modern tools for actually carrying out the computations in a HPC context.Prerequisites Basic knowledge of probability will be useful, as will a basic familiarity with Linux. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/580/ 2017-05-02 07:30:00 UTC 2017-05-04 15:30:00 UTC

    04 May 2017

    HPC code optimisation workshop @ LRZ https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/hpc-code-optimisation-workshop-lrz The workshop is organised as a compact course on techniques and methods, focused on code improvement and exploration of the latest Intel processor features, in particular the vector units. During this optimisation process, the attendees will learn how to enable vectorisation using simple pragmas and more effective techniques, like changing data layout and alignment. This work is guided by the hints from the Intel compiler reports, and using Intel Advisor. The outline of the workshop includes: basics on modern computer architectures, optimisation process and vectorisation, Intel Advisor. We provide also an N-body code, to support the described optimisation solutions with practical examples. The course is a PRACE Advanced Training Center event. Learning goals Through a sequence of simple, guided examples of code modernisation, the attendees will develop awareness on features of multi and many-core architecture which are crucial for writing modern, portable and efficient applications.

He was working as HPC researcher at Max-Planck (MPCDF), Jülich Research Center and Cineca where he was involved in HPC software development. His main research interests are in the area of computational methods and optimizations for HPC systems. He holds a PhD in Physics from University of Regensburg for his research in the area of spintronics. Luigi Iapichino holds a position of scientific computing expert at LRZ and he is member of the Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC). His main tasks are code modernisation for many-core systems, and HPC support. He got in 2005 a PhD in physics from TU München, working at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics. Before moving to LRZ in 2014, he worked at the Universities of Würzburg and Heidelberg, involved in research projects related to computational astrophysics.   https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/607/ 2017-05-04 07:00:00 UTC 2017-05-04 15:00:00 UTC
  • Analysis of RNA-seq data with Bioconductor

    4 - 5 May 2017

    Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Analysis of RNA-seq data with Bioconductor https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/analysis-of-rna-seq-data-with-bioconductor This course provides an introduction to the tools available through the Bioconductor project for manipulating and analysing bulk RNA-seq data. We will present a workflow for the analysis RNA-seq data starting from aligned reads in bam format and producing a list of differentially-expressed genes. We will also describe the various resources available through Bioconductor to annotate, visualise and gain biological insight from the differential expression results.
