WEBINAR: Pro tips for scaling bioinformatics workflows to HPC https://dresa.org.au/materials/webinar-pro-tips-for-scaling-bioinformatics-workflows-to-hpc-9f2a8b90-88da-433b-83b2-b1ab262dd9df This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘Pro tips for scaling bioinformatics workflows to HPC’. This webinar took place on 31 May 2023. Event description  High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructures offer the computational scale and efficiency that life scientists need to handle complex biological datasets and multi-step computational workflows. But scaling workflows to HPC from smaller, more familiar computational infrastructures brings with it new jargon, expectations, and processes to learn. To make the most of HPC resources, bioinformatics workflows need to be designed for distributed computing environments and carefully manage varying resource requirements, and data scale related to biology.   In this webinar, Dr Georgina Samaha from the Sydney Informatics Hub, Dr Matthew Downton from the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) and Dr Sarah Beecroft from the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre help you navigate the world of HPC for running and developing bioinformatics workflows. They explain when you should take your workflows to HPC and highlight the architectural features you should make the most of to scale your analyses once you’re there. You’ll hear pro-tips for dealing with common pain points like software installation, optimising for parallel computing and resource management, and will find out how to get access to Australia’s National HPC infrastructures at NCI and Pawsey.  Materials Materials are shared under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International agreement unless otherwise specified and were current at the time of the event.
