Once this period is over there will be no live monitoring of the forums, but you can still join and complete the course during the remaining period. ### Why join the course? The increase in resistance of harmful bacteria to antibiotics is a major global threat to health. Here we explore bacterial genomes and the use of genome sequencing to identify and track these drug resistant bacteria. Join us to discover how genome research is helping scientists and healthcare professionals track disease outbreaks and prevent the rise of antibiotic resistant ‘superbugs’. ### Who is the course for? This course will be of interest to scientists, healthcare professionals, biomedical researchers and bioinformaticians. The course offers all learners an opportunity to learn about genomes, disease, and antimicrobial resistance. You require no previous knowledge of genome science to complete the course. ### What do people say about this course? "_I would definitely point students to this resource.

The Bioinformatics Team be teaching the course live online, with tutors available to help you work through the course material on a personal copy of the course environment. We will be aiming to simulate the classroom experience as closely as possible, with opportunities for one-to-one discussion with tutors and a focus on interactivity throughout. This course covers concepts and strategies for working more effectively with Python with the aim of writing reusable code, using function and libraries. Participants will acquire a working knowledge of key concepts which are prerequisites for advanced programming in Python e.g. writing modules and classes. Note: this course is the continuation of the [Introduction to Solving Biological Problems with Python](http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/course/bioinfo-python/); participants are expected to have attended the introductory Python course and/or have acquired some working knowledge of Python. This course is also open to Python beginners who are already fluent in other programming languages as this will help them to quickly get started in Python. Please note that if you are not eligible for a University of Cambridge [Raven](http://www.ucs.cam.ac.uk/docs/faq/raven/n5) account you will need to book or register your interest by linking [here](http://bioinfotraining.bio.cam.ac.uk/booking-form/?event-id=3414283&course-title=Data%20Science%20in%20Python).'' 2020-06-01 08:30:00 UTC 2020-06-02 15:30:00 UTC University of Cambridge Craik-Marshall Building, Cambridge, United Kingdom Craik-Marshall Building Cambridge United Kingdom CB2 3AR Bioinformatics Biology University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training [] Graduate studentsPostdocs and Staff members from the University of CambridgeInstitutions and other external Institutions or individuals workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

    [POSTPONED] Basic Parallel Programming with MPI and OpenMP @SURFsara https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/basic-parallel-programming-with-mpi-and-openmp-surfsara NOTE: this is the basic part of a 4-day course at SURFsara. If you wish to attend the full course, you should also register for the advanced part separately. Please check here the advanced part.   This 2-day basic course is focused on providing an introduction to parallel programming using the most widely used approaches: Message Passing Interface (MPI) and Open Multi-Processing (OpenMP). You will start exploring the benefits (and limitations) of parallel programming, and then you will explore the possibilities that task and data parallelism offer to develop multi-core and multi-node programs. Each session includes hands-on exercises to facilitate the understanding of the different constructs.   As a participant, you have already some familiarity with C or Fortran programming, and in these two days you will be able to start the development of your own parallel application. Moreover, right after this short course you will have the opportunity to continue exploring advanced topics on parallel programming and everyday use of MPI/OpenMP. For this you'll need to register for the advanced course too. https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1004/ 2020-06-02 07:00:00 UTC 2020-06-03 15:35:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

  • [POSTPONED] MPI and OpenMP in Scientific Software Development @SURFsara

    4 - 5 June 2020

    [POSTPONED] MPI and OpenMP in Scientific Software Development @SURFsara https://tess.oerc.ox.ac.uk/events/advanced-parallel-programming-with-mpi-and-openmp-surfsara NOTE: this is the advanced part of a 4-day course at SURFsara. If you wish to attend the full course, you should also register for the basic part separately. Please check here the basic part.   This 2-day advanced course describes different everyday challenges that developers of parallel code have to face in everyday work, and provides working solutions for them. Here you will see how to deal with parallel profiling and explore the knobs and dials that make your code exploit the best possible performance, just like domain decomposition techniques and parallel I/O. Each of these sessions includes hands-on exercises to facilitate the understanding of the different constructs. Moreover, you will also obtain some insight on useful parallel libraries and routines for scientific code development, like ParMETIS and PETSc.   As a participant for these two days, you already have basic knowledge on parallel programming with MPI and OpenMP using the C or Fortran programming languages, which are covered in our basic course. If you are not very familiar with these basic concepts, please register for the basic course and then you can also register for this advanced part! https://events.prace-ri.eu/event/1005/ 2020-06-04 07:00:00 UTC 2020-06-05 15:35:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []
