We regularly organize HPC cluster courses in collaboration with the RUG CIT. Courses are not scheduled in fixed intervals, but based on demand: send us an email if you are interested in the next edition.

Beginners course

  • Half day course usually 13:00 - 17:00
  • Target Audience: Anyone who needs more computing power than their personal laptop can provide and
    • either works in research at the UMCG or LifeLines
    • or works in diagnostics at the UMCG Genetics dept.
  • Course is free of charge, but registration is required as seats are limited and accounts need to be arranged in time.

This course will cover:

  • Linux basics
  • Using the SLURM job scheduler
  • Differences between the Peregrine cluster (RUG research), the Calculon & Boxy clusters (UMCG/LifeLines Research) and the Zinc-Finger & Leucine-Zipper clusters (Genome Diagnostics).
  • Best practices on the Calculon, Boxy, Zinc-Finger and Leucine-Zipper clusters.

This course is similar to the Peregrine cluster beginners course from the RUG Center for Information Technology except that:

  • it will cover the details of the Calculon, Boxy, Zinc-Finger and Leucine-Zipper clusters and that
  • it will be hosted on site @ the UMCG.

Course material (slides + exercises) is available on the Peregrine Wiki

The next course is scheduled for:

Wednesday afternoon September 12 2018 • 13:00 - 17:00
UMCG • Onderwijs Centrum (OC) • lokaal/room 18
