Introduction to Linux

This is designed to be an introductory level workshop on Basic Linux (the command line environment and some useful commands). This is a hands-on workshop and an account on the HPC cluster is required. No previous Linux experience is required.

Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics (R)

If you are interested in advancing your skills in multiphysics simulation, please join us. You will see the capabilities and workflow of the COMSOL Multiphysics(R) software and learn through a guided hands-on exercise. You will leave with new skills to work on your own applications using your free two-week COMSOL Multiphysics trial.

Introduction to Tufts High Performance Compute Cluster

This workshop is a brief introduction of the structure of the Tufts HPC cluster, as well as the basic usage of its scheduler "SLURM". This is a hands-on workshop and an account on the HPC cluster is required.

Basic Linux knowledge is required. If you are not familiar with Linux, please check out our "Introduction to Basic Linux" workshop. 

XSEDE Workshop: Multicore Programming in C and Fortran Using OpenMP

This workshop is intended to give C and Fortran programmers a hands-on introduction to OpenMP programming. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to write scalable codes using OpenMP.

These workshops are sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE).

XSEDE Workshop: Big Data Using Python and Spark

Intro to Bioinformatics for NGS Data

This course will cover some examples of using the Tufts High Performance Compute Cluster (HPC) to manipulate Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. Topics covered include quality control, read alignment, transcript quantification and visualization.

It is recommended to take the “Introduction to Linux” and “Introduction to Tufts High Performance Compute Cluster” workshops in preparation for this class. An account on Tufts HPC Cluster is required.
