BioHPC Training Sessions 2022

BioHPC training sessions are now virtual sessions which take place each Wednesday, at 10:30 am until 12:00 pm via MS Teams.

•   1st Wed of each month -  New user training* [Mandatory for new users]
•   HPC & Computer Science topics
•   Bioinformatics / HPC User Showcase

Have coffee with the BioHPC: During some months we will host Coffee with BioHPC - an informal forum for users to discuss projects or questions with BioHPC staff and others. Coffee and light snacks provided.

*Training is now mandatory for new users. Users applying for a new BioHPC account must attend the new user training session, offered monthly, before receiving full access to BioHPC systems. Prior to the training new users should register for an account online, via Initial access to the BioHPC web portal will be limited, permitting new users to review guides and training materials. After the new user attends the mandatory training, full login and storage access to BioHPC systems will be granted.

Notes during COVID-19: Some training schedule may be different from the training calendar. All training will be online through Microsoft Teams. Please pay attention to the BioHPC training notification, usually send on every Monday, which will include instructions on how to join on Microsoft Teams.
