Announcement  of a bioinformatics workshop that is particularly 
addressed to the user community in Berne:

*High Performance Computing (HPC) in Life Science*
* Location: University of Berne, Hauptgebäude (main building), 
Hochschulstrasse 4, room 331
* Date: 28 February 2012
* Web site: http://edu.isb-sib.ch/course/view.php?id=114

*Course overview:*
Several scientific applications require computing and/or storage 
resources that go beyond the processing power of a single multi-core 
machine. High performance computing (HPC) clusters provide the necessary 
hardware and software infrastructure to efficiently run computing and 
data intensive applications. The course provides detailed information on 
how to efficiently use the computing and storage infrastructure for life 
science applications.

Note: The course is dedicated to the user community in Berne but others 
are welcome, too. Focus will be on how to use Vital-IT's life science 
software on the UBELIX cluster in Berne.

* Obtain basic knowledge on high throughput and high performance computing
* Learn how to use Vital-IT's infrastructure (incl. UBELIX in Berne) for 
scientific applications (including hands-on exercises)
* Tips and tricks for effective and efficient cluster usage (incl. 
compute and storage usage guidelines)
* Discuss particular computing needs and requirements of course participants

* Basic understanding of working with command line tools on Linux or 
Windows-based operating systems
* Scripting language such as bash or Perl is an asset
