BioHPC LaboratoryComputational BiologyService UnitPractical exercises for the workshop will becarried out using CBSU BioHPC LabSoftware used during the workshop can bedownloaded from www.maizegenetics.net


BioHPC LaboratoryComputational BiologyService UnitBioHPC Laboratory is a computational cloud-likeresource configured and optimized for the needsof computational biology

BioHPC LaboratoryComputational BiologyService UnitWorkstations feature two kinds of storage:oNetwork storage/home//programs/shared_dataoLocal storage/workdir/local_data


BioHPC LaboratoryComputational BiologyService UnitRemember:/workdir should be treated strictly as scratch space, i.e, files createdthere are not guaranteed to be preserved after the workshop (moregenerally, when your reservation expires). After completing thecalculations, you will have to copy any important result files you wishto save to your home directory, where they will be preserved andaccessible from other workstations.Create your own subdirectory /workdir//home/ is NOT for computations – they will be painfullyslow there!


BioHPC LaboratoryComputational BiologyService UnitBioHPC Lab website allows for managing your account, make andmanage reservations and (sometimes) connect to the workstations.Reservations for this workshop have been pre-arranged, workstationassignments are published on the workshop web pages:http://cbsu.tc.cornell.edu/lab/doc/GBS_workstations1.htm
