Bioinformatics workshops - Fall 2024

We continuously organize basic and advanced workshops on a wide range of bioinformatics topics. These workshops are designed to address practical issues often encountered in bioinformatics work. They are designed to help users understand and work with the CRC clusters.

These workshops have hands-on components that require the following requirements be set up before a workshop begins.

  1. Participants should have an account on the HTC cluster, which is the cluster we will use for demonstration purposes. (page 1 of this documentation)
  2. This workshop also requires that participants either be on a Pitt network (hard-line) or behind a VPN. (page 2 of this documentation)
  3. You can submit jobs, i.e., your group's account has not expired, and your group's service units (CPU-hours) have not been exhausted entirely (page 4 of this documentation)

As a general rule, we offer no troubleshooting for technical setup issues at the workshops themselves! Therefore, be aware that if you do not set up the workshop's technical prerequisites well in advance, you may not be able to participate fully in its hands-on activities.

Please note: workshops will be presented in a hybrid format with up to 20 in-person participants. If you register for an in-person session and the in-person session is full, you will be alerted and receive a video conferencing link via the e-mail address you provide. CRC will continue to follow University guidelines regarding COVID-19 precautions, so other changes could be possible depending on those guidelines.
