Using Docker in BioHPC Cloud (WCMC)  
May 19-28 2020

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

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: a lecture/presentation session followed by a hands-on session, allowing plenty of time for hands-on training.

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

Machine allocations will be posted here.
