Using Docker in BioHPC Cloud  
April 27-29 2020 Video conferencing through Zoom

The workshop (including hands-on sessions) will be through Zoom. An invitation will be sent to registered attendees through email before the workshop. Docker is a Linux subsystem allowing users to run applications in a way that is isolated from the host operating system. Users can run applications native to other Linux distributions without porting or modifying them – for example Ubuntu pipelines on CentOS/RedHat. With Docker, any user can install applications that require administrator (“root”) access. Publically available Docker "images" can be download with pre-installed dependencies for many different software pipelines. You can also build your own customized Docker image that can be easily shared with others allowing anyone to be quickly up and running with your pipeline or program.

This workshop will introduce users to the BioHPC Cloud implementation of Docker and show with examples how it can be efficiently used for bioinformatics applications.

This workshop is divided into paired sessions: lecture/presentation session (Mondays) followed by hands-on session (Wednesdays), this arrangement will allow for plenty of time for hands-on training.

Machine allocations are posted here.
