The Pub Club (Nov 11): Bioinformatics Resources
November 11, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Graduate student Amanda Charbonneau (Dworkin/Conner Labs) will be giving an overview of bioinformatics resources available through the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (iCER) and the High Performance Computing Center (HPCC).
iCER facilitates advanced computational research for the Michigan State University research community and additional affiliate organizations through resources, such as the HPCC, as well as training, user support, and consulting. The HPCC team is the group within iCER that is responsible for building, maintaining, and supporting MSU’s high-performance computing clusters and infrastructure. Some of this infrastructure includes large, high-speed file systems, collaborative storage space, user access mechanisms, as well as all of the networking, electrical power, and the cooling needs that are required for a high-performance computing environment.
Our discussion will address the software tools available through the HPCC and iCER that can be used for sequence quality checking, genome assembly, metabolite analysis, and more!
