  • WORKSHOP: Hybrid de novo genome assembly

    7 October 2021

    WORKSHOP: Hybrid de novo genome assembly https://dresa.org.au/events/workshop-hybrid-de-novo-genome-assembly It’s now easier than ever to assemble new reference genomes thanks to hybrid genome assembly approaches which enable research on organisms for which reference genomes were not previously available. These approaches combine the strengths of short (Illumina) and long (PacBio or Nanopore) read technologies, resulting in improved assembly quality. In this workshop we will learn how to create and assess genome assemblies from Illumina and Nanopore reads using data from a _Bacillus Subtilis_ strain. We will demonstrate two hybrid-assembly methods using the tools [Flye](https://github.com/fenderglass/Flye), [Pilon](https://github.com/broadinstitute/pilon/wiki), and [Unicycler](https://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005595) to perform assembly and subsequent error correction. You will learn how to visualise input read sets and the assemblies produced at each stage and assess the quality of the final assembly. All analyses will be performed using [Galaxy Australia](https://usegalaxy.org.au/), an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience. **Date/time:** 2 - 5pm AEDT/ 1 - 4pm AEST/ 1:30 - 4:30pm ACDT/ 11am - 2pm AWST, Thursday 7 October 2021 **Lead Trainer:** Grace Hall, Melbourne Bioinformatics **Learning outcomes** By the end of this workshop you should be able to: 1. Describe how Nanopore and Illumina reads can be used together to produce a high quality assembly 2. Use genome assembly and polishing programs in Galaxy Australia 3. Assess the quality of a genome assembly with and without a reference genome 4. Assemble an unknown, previously undocumented genome to high-quality using Nanopore and Illumina reads The workshop will NOT provide an introduction to the basics of Galaxy. If you would like to learn about this topic there are several tutorials available via the [Galaxy Training Network](https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/). **Who the workshop is for** This workshop is for Australian researchers who are or will perform hybrid genome assembly as part of their projects. To get the most out of the workshops you must have experience with the basics of using Galaxy Australia such as setting up a history, uploading data and running tools. It is recommended that you complete the tutorial [Galaxy 101 for Everyone](https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/topics/introduction/tutorials/galaxy-intro-101-everyone/tutorial.html). No programming experience is required. **How to apply** This workshop is free but participation is subject to application with selection. **_Applications close at 11:59pm AEST Wednesday 29 September 2021._** You must be associated with an Australian organisation and provide an appropriate organisational email address for your application to be considered.

  • OpenRefine for Social Science Data

    14 October 2021

    OpenRefine for Social Science Data https://dresa.org.au/events/openrefine-for-social-science-data A part of the data workflow is preparing the data for analysis. Some of this involves data cleaning, where errors in the data are identifed and corrected or formatting made consistent. This step must be taken with the same care and attention to reproducibility as the analysis. OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a powerful free and open source tool for working with messy data: cleaning it and transforming it from one format into another. This lesson will teach you to use OpenRefine to effectively clean and format data and automatically track any changes that you make. Many people comment that this tool saves them literally months of work trying to make these edits by hand. 2021-10-14 14:00:00 UTC 2021-10-14 16:00:00 UTC Federation University Library Federation University Library c.claridge@federation.edu.au [] [] webinar host_institution []

  • Skills impact & strategy

    27 October 2021

    Skills impact & strategy https://dresa.org.au/events/skills-impact-strategy High quality training is critical to maintaining a competent and competitive digital research ready workforce. Maximising the impact of skills training events, course ware, training materials and resources helps ensure greatest return on investment for training providers, trainers and learners across the research sector. Measuring the effectiveness of our training endeavours and initiatives can demonstrate the value of the resource investments made and improve the quality of future skills training. Measuring training outcomes and impacts is a complex activity. While short-term assessment of training is more widely captured and reported, determining long-term behavioural change and impact on researchers is much more challenging.Training providers and trainers need to understand: - How learners react to training - what they think and feel about the training provided. - What learners retain in terms of the skills and knowledge delivered by the training. - How learners are incorporating new skills and knowledge into their workflows. - Whether the skills and knowledge acquired in training helped researchers to produce any research outputs in a more efficient and effective way. - Emerging digital skills and technologies where there are none or limited training resources. This free and online event is for digital research trainers and anyone who is responsible for or interested in training assessment and evaluation methods, and gauging the impact of training. Are you a trainer, course developer, training program manager, researcher who trains, organisation decision maker, infrastructure manager or anyone involved in digital infrastructure training programs? Then this workshop is for you! Sessions include an exploration of: - Why it’s important to measure impact - What are the challenges in evaluating short- and long-term impact - What are we assessing/evaluating, how and when - What assessment and evaluation strategies work best and when - How training developers and trainers can improve their impact - Coming full circle - what’s in it for the learner 2021-10-27 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-27 16:30:00 UTC Australian Research Data Commons Australian Research Data CommonsIntersectQCIFNCIPawsey Supercomputing Research CentreUniversity of SydneyCSIROUniversity of MelbourneBureau of MeteorologyMonash UniversityNational Computational InfrastructureUniversity of Southern Queensland ARDC Contact us: contact@ardc.edu.au [] trainertraining coordinator 100 workshop open_to_all impacttrainingmetrics

  • WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo

    17 November 2021

    WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo https://dresa.org.au/events/workshop-refining-genome-annotations-with-apollo Genome annotation is crucial to defining the function of genomic sequences. This process typically involves a round of automated annotation followed by manual curation. Manual curation allows you to visualise your annotations so you can understand what your organism looks like, and then to manually refine these annotations along with any additional data you might have. This process is typically performed collaboratively as part of a team effort. Apollo is a popular tool for facilitating real-time collaborative, manual curation and genome annotation editing. In this workshop we will learn how to use Apollo to refine genome annotations using example data from an _E. coli_ strain. We’ll focus on the basics like getting data into Apollo, viewing evidence tracks, editing and adding structural and functional annotation, visualising the results and collaborating on genome annotations. This workshop will make use of a training instance of the new [Australian Apollo Service](https://apollo-portal.genome.edu.au/). This service enables Australian-based research groups and consortia to access Apollo and host genome assembly and supporting evidence files for free. This service has been made possible by The Australian BioCommons and partners at QCIF and Pawsey. To learn more about the Australian Apollo Service you can [join our webinar](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/apollo-launch) on 29 September 2021. **Trainers** Dr Anthony Bretaudeau (French National Institute for Agriculture, Food, and Environment), Dr Helena Rasche (Erasmus Medical Center, The Netherlands), Dr Sarah Williams (QCIF), Dr Tiffanie Nelson (Australian BioCommons) **Date/Time** 3-6pm AEDT/ 2-5pm AEST/ 2:30-5:30pm ACDT / 12-3pm AWST, Wednesday 17 Nov 2021 **Learning outcomes** By the end of the workshop you should be able to: 1. Upload data to Apollo 2. Visualise your genome and associated automated annotations 3. Manually annotate genomes after automated annotations have been performed 4. Evaluate and visualise annotated genomic features 5.

  • P’Con – Exascale Data Management with ADIOS

    7 December 2021

    P’Con – Exascale Data Management with ADIOS https://dresa.org.au/events/p-con-exascale-data-management-with-adios Speakers: Speaker: Scott Klasky, Norbert Podhorszki (Oak Ridge National Laboratories) ADIOS is a high performance publish/subscribe I/O framework which has been designed and developed for the exascale computing era. In a snapshot, ADIOS: - Is integrated into most of the popular analysis and visualization packages. - Has strict continuous integration practices, providing stable, portable and efficient I/O services. - Has a programming interface designed for easy switching from files to streams (on-HPC machines) to streams over the Wide Area Network. In this presentation, the speaker will introduce the ADIOS I/O framework and describe how it is being used, including: - In data intensive supercomputing simulations, using it for data storage and retrieval moving petabytes of data in a single job, - In coupled simulations using it for data movement between the simulation codes and to in situ analysis and in situ visualization services, - In AI applications, for collecting training data from ensembles of computations on the fly, and - In collaborations between experimental facilities and HPC centers to stream experimental data for near-real-time decision making. We will present how ADIOS was used in the 2020 Gordon Bell finalist paper from Pawsey and ORNL about the workflow for simulating and processing the full-scale low-frequency telescope data of SKA Phase 1 on the Summit supercomputer at ORNL. ADIOS is also a research framework for new I/O technologies, pushing the boundaries beyond current use cases. Our research focuses on data reduction with trusted lossy compression techniques, data refactoring for easier on-demand retrieval, hierarchical storage to speed up access to the most important data, asynchronous I/O techniques and others. The techniques in ADIOS have been developed for over 15 years through collaborations with science applications, and we are always seeking new collaborations and new challenges that will define the I/O landscape of the future. We hope this presentation will allow the audience to learn about how others are using extreme I/O in their fields and also stimulate the audience to bring new challenges to us.

  • P’Con – Porting multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort

    8 December 2021

    P’Con – Porting multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort https://dresa.org.au/events/p-con-porting-multi-gpu-self-fluids-code-to-hipfort Speaker: By Dr Joseph Schoonover, Fluid Numerics LLC During this talk, we will share our experience with porting process for SELF-Fluids from multi-GPU CUDA-Fortran to multi-GPU HIPFort. The talk will cover the design principles and roadmap for SELF and the strategy to port from Nvidia-only platforms to AMD & Nvidia GPUs. We’ll discuss hurdles encountered along the way and considerations for developing multi-GPU accelerated applications in Fortran. SELF is an object-oriented Fortran library that supports the implementation of Spectral Element Methods for solving partial differential equations. SELF-Fluids is an implementation of SELF that solves the compressible Navier Stokes equations on CPU only and GPU accelerated compute platforms using the Discontinuous Galerkin Spectral Element Method. The SELF API is designed based on the assumption that SEM developers and researchers need to be able to implement derivatives in 1-D and divergence, gradient, and curl in 2-D and 3-D on scalar, vector, and tensor functions using spectral collocation, continuous Galerkin, and discontinuous Galerkin spectral element methods. Additionally, as we enter the Exascale era, we are currently faced with a zoo of compute hardware that is available. Because of this, SELF routines provide support for GPU acceleration through AMD’s HIP and support for multi-core, multi-node, and multi-GPU platforms with MPI. SELF and SELF-Fluids are publicly available online at https://github.com/fluidnumerics/self Porting multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort, is part of the first PaCER Conference – P’con: A week where Pawsey continues setting the pace for exascale. 2021-12-08 09:30:00 UTC 2021-12-08 11:30:00 UTC Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre training@pawsey.org.au [] [] webinarconference open_to_all GPUsHipFortsupercomputersupercomputingSetonix

  • WORKSHOP: Hybrid de novo genome assembly

    7 October 2021

    WORKSHOP: Hybrid de novo genome assembly https://dresa.org.au/events/workshop-hybrid-de-novo-genome-assembly It’s now easier than ever to assemble new reference genomes thanks to hybrid genome assembly approaches which enable research on organisms for which reference genomes were not previously available. These approaches combine the strengths of short (Illumina) and long (PacBio or Nanopore) read technologies, resulting in improved assembly quality. In this workshop we will learn how to create and assess genome assemblies from Illumina and Nanopore reads using data from a _Bacillus Subtilis_ strain. We will demonstrate two hybrid-assembly methods using the tools [Flye](https://github.com/fenderglass/Flye), [Pilon](https://github.com/broadinstitute/pilon/wiki), and [Unicycler](https://journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/article?id=10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005595) to perform assembly and subsequent error correction. You will learn how to visualise input read sets and the assemblies produced at each stage and assess the quality of the final assembly. All analyses will be performed using [Galaxy Australia](https://usegalaxy.org.au/), an online platform for biological research that allows people to use computational data analysis tools and workflows without the need for programming experience. **Date/time:** 2 - 5pm AEDT/ 1 - 4pm AEST/ 1:30 - 4:30pm ACDT/ 11am - 2pm AWST, Thursday 7 October 2021 **Lead Trainer:** Grace Hall, Melbourne Bioinformatics **Learning outcomes** By the end of this workshop you should be able to: 1. Describe how Nanopore and Illumina reads can be used together to produce a high quality assembly 2. Use genome assembly and polishing programs in Galaxy Australia 3. Assess the quality of a genome assembly with and without a reference genome 4. Assemble an unknown, previously undocumented genome to high-quality using Nanopore and Illumina reads The workshop will NOT provide an introduction to the basics of Galaxy. If you would like to learn about this topic there are several tutorials available via the [Galaxy Training Network](https://training.galaxyproject.org/training-material/). **Who the workshop is for** This workshop is for Australian researchers who are or will perform hybrid genome assembly as part of their projects. To get the most out of the workshops you must have experience with the basics of using Galaxy Australia such as setting up a history, uploading data and running tools.

  • OpenRefine for Social Science Data

    14 October 2021

    OpenRefine for Social Science Data https://dresa.org.au/events/openrefine-for-social-science-data A part of the data workflow is preparing the data for analysis. Some of this involves data cleaning, where errors in the data are identifed and corrected or formatting made consistent. This step must be taken with the same care and attention to reproducibility as the analysis. OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a powerful free and open source tool for working with messy data: cleaning it and transforming it from one format into another. This lesson will teach you to use OpenRefine to effectively clean and format data and automatically track any changes that you make. Many people comment that this tool saves them literally months of work trying to make these edits by hand. 2021-10-14 14:00:00 UTC 2021-10-14 16:00:00 UTC Federation University Library Federation University Library c.claridge@federation.edu.au [] [] webinar host_institution []

  • Skills impact & strategy

    27 October 2021

    Skills impact & strategy https://dresa.org.au/events/skills-impact-strategy High quality training is critical to maintaining a competent and competitive digital research ready workforce. Maximising the impact of skills training events, course ware, training materials and resources helps ensure greatest return on investment for training providers, trainers and learners across the research sector. Measuring the effectiveness of our training endeavours and initiatives can demonstrate the value of the resource investments made and improve the quality of future skills training. Measuring training outcomes and impacts is a complex activity. While short-term assessment of training is more widely captured and reported, determining long-term behavioural change and impact on researchers is much more challenging.Training providers and trainers need to understand: - How learners react to training - what they think and feel about the training provided. - What learners retain in terms of the skills and knowledge delivered by the training. - How learners are incorporating new skills and knowledge into their workflows. - Whether the skills and knowledge acquired in training helped researchers to produce any research outputs in a more efficient and effective way. - Emerging digital skills and technologies where there are none or limited training resources. This free and online event is for digital research trainers and anyone who is responsible for or interested in training assessment and evaluation methods, and gauging the impact of training. Are you a trainer, course developer, training program manager, researcher who trains, organisation decision maker, infrastructure manager or anyone involved in digital infrastructure training programs? Then this workshop is for you! Sessions include an exploration of: - Why it’s important to measure impact - What are the challenges in evaluating short- and long-term impact - What are we assessing/evaluating, how and when - What assessment and evaluation strategies work best and when - How training developers and trainers can improve their impact - Coming full circle - what’s in it for the learner 2021-10-27 12:00:00 UTC 2021-10-27 16:30:00 UTC Australian Research Data Commons Australian Research Data CommonsIntersectQCIFNCIPawsey Supercomputing Research CentreUniversity of SydneyCSIROUniversity of MelbourneBureau of MeteorologyMonash UniversityNational Computational InfrastructureUniversity of Southern Queensland ARDC Contact us: contact@ardc.edu.au [] trainertraining coordinator 100 workshop open_to_all impacttrainingmetrics

  • WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo

    17 November 2021

    WORKSHOP: Refining genome annotations with Apollo https://dresa.org.au/events/workshop-refining-genome-annotations-with-apollo Genome annotation is crucial to defining the function of genomic sequences. This process typically involves a round of automated annotation followed by manual curation. Manual curation allows you to visualise your annotations so you can understand what your organism looks like, and then to manually refine these annotations along with any additional data you might have. This process is typically performed collaboratively as part of a team effort. Apollo is a popular tool for facilitating real-time collaborative, manual curation and genome annotation editing. In this workshop we will learn how to use Apollo to refine genome annotations using example data from an _E. coli_ strain. We’ll focus on the basics like getting data into Apollo, viewing evidence tracks, editing and adding structural and functional annotation, visualising the results and collaborating on genome annotations. This workshop will make use of a training instance of the new [Australian Apollo Service](https://apollo-portal.genome.edu.au/). This service enables Australian-based research groups and consortia to access Apollo and host genome assembly and supporting evidence files for free. This service has been made possible by The Australian BioCommons and partners at QCIF and Pawsey. To learn more about the Australian Apollo Service you can [join our webinar](https://www.biocommons.org.au/events/apollo-launch) on 29 September 2021. **Trainers** Dr Anthony Bretaudeau (French National Institute for Agriculture, Food, and Environment), Dr Helena Rasche (Erasmus Medical Center, The Netherlands), Dr Sarah Williams (QCIF), Dr Tiffanie Nelson (Australian BioCommons) **Date/Time** 3-6pm AEDT/ 2-5pm AEST/ 2:30-5:30pm ACDT / 12-3pm AWST, Wednesday 17 Nov 2021 **Learning outcomes** By the end of the workshop you should be able to: 1. Upload data to Apollo 2. Visualise your genome and associated automated annotations 3. Manually annotate genomes after automated annotations have been performed 4.

    7 December 2021

    P’Con – Exascale Data Management with ADIOS https://dresa.org.au/events/p-con-exascale-data-management-with-adios Speakers: Speaker: Scott Klasky, Norbert Podhorszki (Oak Ridge National Laboratories) ADIOS is a high performance publish/subscribe I/O framework which has been designed and developed for the exascale computing era. In a snapshot, ADIOS: - Is integrated into most of the popular analysis and visualization packages. - Has strict continuous integration practices, providing stable, portable and efficient I/O services. - Has a programming interface designed for easy switching from files to streams (on-HPC machines) to streams over the Wide Area Network. In this presentation, the speaker will introduce the ADIOS I/O framework and describe how it is being used, including: - In data intensive supercomputing simulations, using it for data storage and retrieval moving petabytes of data in a single job, - In coupled simulations using it for data movement between the simulation codes and to in situ analysis and in situ visualization services, - In AI applications, for collecting training data from ensembles of computations on the fly, and - In collaborations between experimental facilities and HPC centers to stream experimental data for near-real-time decision making. We will present how ADIOS was used in the 2020 Gordon Bell finalist paper from Pawsey and ORNL about the workflow for simulating and processing the full-scale low-frequency telescope data of SKA Phase 1 on the Summit supercomputer at ORNL. ADIOS is also a research framework for new I/O technologies, pushing the boundaries beyond current use cases. Our research focuses on data reduction with trusted lossy compression techniques, data refactoring for easier on-demand retrieval, hierarchical storage to speed up access to the most important data, asynchronous I/O techniques and others. The techniques in ADIOS have been developed for over 15 years through collaborations with science applications, and we are always seeking new collaborations and new challenges that will define the I/O landscape of the future. We hope this presentation will allow the audience to learn about how others are using extreme I/O in their fields and also stimulate the audience to bring new challenges to us.

    P’Con – Porting multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort https://dresa.org.au/events/p-con-porting-multi-gpu-self-fluids-code-to-hipfort Speaker: By Dr Joseph Schoonover, Fluid Numerics LLC During this talk, we will share our experience with porting process for SELF-Fluids from multi-GPU CUDA-Fortran to multi-GPU HIPFort. The talk will cover the design principles and roadmap for SELF and the strategy to port from Nvidia-only platforms to AMD & Nvidia GPUs. We’ll discuss hurdles encountered along the way and considerations for developing multi-GPU accelerated applications in Fortran. SELF is an object-oriented Fortran library that supports the implementation of Spectral Element Methods for solving partial differential equations. SELF-Fluids is an implementation of SELF that solves the compressible Navier Stokes equations on CPU only and GPU accelerated compute platforms using the Discontinuous Galerkin Spectral Element Method. The SELF API is designed based on the assumption that SEM developers and researchers need to be able to implement derivatives in 1-D and divergence, gradient, and curl in 2-D and 3-D on scalar, vector, and tensor functions using spectral collocation, continuous Galerkin, and discontinuous Galerkin spectral element methods. Additionally, as we enter the Exascale era, we are currently faced with a zoo of compute hardware that is available. Because of this, SELF routines provide support for GPU acceleration through AMD’s HIP and support for multi-core, multi-node, and multi-GPU platforms with MPI. SELF and SELF-Fluids are publicly available online at https://github.com/fluidnumerics/self Porting multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort, is part of the first PaCER Conference – P’con: A week where Pawsey continues setting the pace for exascale. 2021-12-08 09:30:00 UTC 2021-12-08 11:30:00 UTC Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre training@pawsey.org.au [] [] webinarconference open_to_all GPUsHipFortsupercomputersupercomputingSetonix

  • Pawsey Intern Showcase 2022

    11 February 2022

    Pawsey Intern Showcase 2022 https://dresa.org.au/events/pawsey-intern-showcase-2022 The Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre takes prides in its Summer Internship Program – working in partnership with bright students on challenging and interesting projects. Like last year, this year’s Intern cohort more than doubled in size, now at 47 Interns, working with dozens of committed PIs and supervisors around the country. The Intern Mentor Program also continues to grow and change, as does the range of trainings we immerse students in during Week 1 of the Program (and throughout). This year’s Interns continue to astound – working creatively and effectively during the intensive ten-week program without having to step into the Centre. A virtual (and literal) success! To view Intern posters and to hear about their projects and unique experiences, join our online conference. You will also hear more about the research happening with two interesting Intern Projects. 2022-02-11 09:45:00 UTC 2022-02-11 12:50:00 UTC Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre Remo Platform, Online, Australia Remo Platform Online Australia 6151 Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre training@pawsey.org.au [] [] conference open_to_all supercomputingsupercomputerinternshipinterns
