Amsterdam Science Park Study Group



An afternoon dedicated to the SILS/IBED Crunchomics computing cluster. After a small introduction to the Crunchomics system, a demonstration of how to connect to crunchomics and how to execute a genomic pipeline will be given.

We will guide you regarding connection using the ssh protocol, navigating the file system using Shell commands and how to create an environment dedicated to your needs using conda. We will then dig deeper by introducing the SLURM queuing system for batch jobs.

People involved: Marc Galland, Evelien Jongepier, Wim de Leeuw, Han Rauwerda.

!! Important !! Please follow the instructions here to make sure that you have a working installation of the Unix Shell.

To register:

An afternoon dedicated to basic statistics for biologists. After this event, you will be able to better understand how to decide on the number of biological replicates needed for your experiment, get basic notions on inference statistics and apply it to your daily work.

People involved: Marc Galland, Emiel van Loon.

Registration is mandatory and free: please enroll here.
