This 1/2-day workshop will cover hands-on examples to get you started doing Genome Assembly, Annotation, and RNA-Seq using tools developed by the iPlant Collaborative, a cyberinfrastructure project funded by the National Science Foundation.
Participants will get hands-on experience with the following iPlant cyberinfrastructure:
Discovery Environment: Simple web portal for managing data, analyses, and workflows. Complex bioinformatics applications can be run without knowing command line programming; users can also integrate their own tools.
Data Store: Scalable, secure, and reliable storage for terabyte-scale data.
Atmosphere: 1-click, on-demand cloud computing.
Who Should Attend?
Any investigator (PIs, post-docs, grad students, industry users) who is or will be working with large datasets and computation-intensive research questions in the life-sciences (plants and animals!).
