BIOL 59500 - High Performance Computing (HPC) for Life Sciences Class
March 6, 2018 – April 26, 2018
In collaboration with the Department of Biological Sciences, Research Computing will be offering an eight-week course, BIOL 59500, High Performance Computing (HPC) for Life Sciences.
This course introduces advanced undergraduates and graduate students to using the Purdue RCAC compute clusters, the Unix operating system, and the cluster batch-operating system. This course is targeted at students in the College of Agriculture and other life sciences. No previous experience with the Unix operating system, programming, or genomics is required.
- The course will focus on examples drawn from genomics, bioinformatics, and other life science applications. For spring 2018, the primary focus will be on hands-on analysis of differential gene expression using RNA-Seq data. Each week, the Tuesday session will be primarily lecture-based and introduce new material. The Thursday session will focus on hands-on examples and use of the methods. Students must bring a laptop to the Thursday sessions in order to connect to RCAC compute systems.
