WEBINAR: Where to go when your bioinformatics outgrows your compute
10:00am - 11:00am
Date/time: 19 August 2021 – 12:00-13:00 AEST / 11:30 – 12:30 ACST / 10:00-11:00 AWST
Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and “Just getting it to work” are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey. We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers.
Who the webinar is for
This webinar is intended for biological researchers who wish to understand what computational infrastructure is available outside their institution’s compute facilities. Some familiarity with the concepts of high performance computing is recommended. We think you will enjoy this webinar if you have experienced one of the following:
- Your high performance computing jobs fail because of walltime limits
- Not having enough disk to process your data
- Feeling intimidated by the compute resources and time required to process large datasets
If you’re considering applying for access to compute through the NCMAS allocation scheme you can find out more about tailoring your application to bioinformatics projects in the next webinar High performance bioinformatics: submitting your best NCMAS application.
