04 Sep UBC Webinar(16:00Sep11): “HPC Updates and Using Workflow Managers”
On Monday, September 11 at 16:00, Dr. Ies Nijman, UMCU and Dr. Jayne Hehir-Kwa, PMC, will give an update on the HPC facility and give a quick guide to the possibilities of using workflow managers on the HPC
HPC Updates and Using Workflow Managers
Current bioinformatics often involves either compute intensive calculations or processing large datasets, and often both. The high performance compute (HPC) facility, as part of the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC), offers extensive computing possibilities for all researchers of the Utrecht Science Park. The cluster consists of a collection of compute servers (>2000 CPUcores, 30 GPUs, 20 TB ram), 1.7 PB high performance storage as well as archive storage.
Recently a lot of work has been done, not only maintaining, but also with new innovations on the HPC. To keep our community updated, we organize this special edition of the UBC monthly seminar. Dr. Ies Nijman, the manager of the UBC HPC facility, will give you a brief introduction to our HPC and elaborate the recent work/changes. In the second part of the seminar we will discuss how to use workflow management tools to process big data. Dr. Jayne Hehir-Kwa, a researcher from the Princess Máxima Center who is also one of UBC’s Executive Board members, will give you a quick guide to the possibilities of using workflow managers on the HPC.
