Bioinformatics analyses are often complex, requiring multiple software tools and specialised compute resources. “I don’t know what compute resources I will need”, “My analysis won’t run and I don’t know why” and "Just getting it to work" are common pain points for researchers. In this webinar, you will learn how to understand the compute requirements for your bioinformatics workflows. You will also hear about ways of accessing compute that suits your needs as an Australian researcher, including Galaxy Australia, cloud and high-performance computing services offered by the Australian Research Data Commons, the National Compute Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey. We also describe bioinformatics and computing support services available to Australian researchers.
This webinar is intended for Australian biological researchers who wish to understand what computational infrastructure is available outside their institution’s compute facilities. We think you will enjoy this webinar if you have experienced one of the following:
• Your high performance computing jobs fail because of walltime limits;
• Not having enough disk to process your data;
• Feeling intimidated by the compute resources and time required to process large datasets
Some familiarity with the concepts of high performance computing is recommended.
