Supercomputing for Everyone Series: Introduction to R for Biologists
APPLICATION DEADLINE: None - but the workshops are already over 2/3 full
In this three day workshop, learn about the basics of the R language - structure, data types, and functions - that will help you read and write R. The first day will cover the basics of the language, the second day will cover basic visualization of mapping and ordination data, and the third day will dive into classes and writing your own functions. A lecture and Lab will be taught on each day, February 11, 18, and 25 from
This workshop is being offered at IU-Bloomington, IUPUI, and online. Online office hours will be provided for online participants through slack.
This workshop is currently full! If you are interested, do register since we will be contacting the folks on the waitlist, with details of the upcoming workshops, and an online course that will be made available in the near future.

Supercomputing for Everyone Series: de novo assembly of transcriptomes using HPC resources workshop
APPLICATION DEADLINE MONDAY FEBRUARY 25 at
The National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) at Indiana University seeks interested participants for this FREE National Science Foundation-sponsored three-day workshop.
Registration page: http://go.iu.edu/29rf
NCGAS is offering a National Science Foundation-sponsored, three-day workshop on high-performance computing (HPC) usage, and de novo transcriptome assembly. It will take place April 29-May 1st on the IU Bloomington campus. Registration is free, but the application is required.
The workshop will include discussions, lectures, and hands-on tutorials to cover topics important to getting started constructing and analyzing transcriptomes-without the use of a genome. The material covers both the availability and use of HPC resources, alongside the task of assembling a new transcriptome, in order to provide more comprehensive preparation for this and future bioinformatic tasks.
Transcriptome assembly will consist of using four separate assemblers (Trinity, SOAP de novo, Velvet Oases, and TransABySS), with multiple
While material will make heavy use of XSEDE and IU machines, the material is transferable to any cluster.
