CCV Research Computing Bootcamp 2021

High-Performance Computing (HPC) & Bioinformatics Essentials

Join CCV staff members from 3-7 May 2021 for a week-long series of interactive online tutorials designed to introduce members of the Brown community to some of the research computing resources available to them. The tutorials will provide participants with the practical knowledge necessary to make effective use of Oscar, Brown's research computing cluster, in their own research, while introducing the fundamentals of high-performance computing (HPC) and bioinformatics workflows.

A complete list of tutorials, along with brief descriptions, can be found on the schedule for each day found in the links in the menu to the left.

Registration

Bootcamp tutorials are offered on an à la carte basis, so that participants need only attend those tutorials that are of interest to them. Because the tutorials are staggered in time, individuals can participate in multiple tutorials on any given day if they register for them. Registered participants will receive an email with instructions for connecting to the tutorials via Zoom on the day before each session.

Oscar accounts

We highly recommend that participants have an account on Oscar, since many of the exercises in the tutorials will require access to Oscar. Accounts on Oscar are free to all members of the Brown community. If you do not already have an account on Oscar, you can apply for one by following the link below.
