The 2nd Edition of the Course on Computational Biosciences using HPC Systems has come to an end

27 people have taken our course this time around! The 3-day initiative took place at the NOVA School of Science and Technology and brought together researchers looking to learn more about High Performance Computing (HPC)

Having had a bonus, optional module the day prior, the 2nd Edition of the Course on Computational Biosciences Using HPC Systems started on February 6, with Ana Rita Grosso kicking-off the first part of Module 1: “High-throughput Sequencing Data”.

Designed to acknowledge HPC-related tools for researchers and students to boost their projects, the course covered a total of six parts, divided into two independent modules. Each module was limited to 15 places each and it was almost fully booked, having had 13 people attending the first module and 14 on the second one!

The hands-on course was a collaboration between the Research Unit on Applied Molecular Biosciences (UCIBIO), the Associated Laboratory for Green Chemistry (LAQV) and the Laboratory of Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics (LIP), under the framework of the EuroCC Project.
