Workshops

Software installation and Conda (WCMC)  
May 5-14 2020
Registration for this workshop is closed.


NOTE: This workshop is now open both to Ithaca Campus and WCMC.

We have two goals for participants in this workshop: 1) Learn how to install software on a Linux computer; 2) Understand the basic architecture of Linux software, so you can troubleshoot if a software does not run.

The workshop has two sesssions: 

Part 1. Basic architecture of Linux software and how to install software in Conda. Installing, updating and deleting software in Conda is very easy, and does not require "root" (administrative level) privilege. There are more than 3000 bioinformatics software titles available from Conda.  

Part 2. Installation of software without Conda. Most of the commonly used software should be available in the Conda repository. But some software might not be in Conda yet, and some might even require you to compile the source code by yourself.  In this session, we will cover software written in PYTHON, C, PERL, R and JAVA. 


The workshop is divided into paired sessions: a lecture/presentation session followed by a hands-on session, allowing for plenty of time for hands-on training.
 

The workshop will be conducted remotely via Zoom. The link to the workshop Zoom session will be sent in advance to all participants via e-mail.

The machine allocations will be posted here.
