Description

Get hands-on training that will make you successful in a Bioinformatic lab! All the services and details from bottom up, e.g. Wiki, version control, compute cluster, software packaging

Organization

Requirements and features of a new service will discussed with the tutors every week. After this the students have to set up this service. Students will build their servers on USB sticks - provided from rostlab - that they are going to use as 'hard drives'.

The goal of the present time (Mo 14-16) is to raise awareness of issues pertaining the topics at hand. In order achieve successful discussion students are required to prepare with critical background knowledge. Therefore, next to the programming challenges, some theoretical preparation is required. In the list of topics links to fitting literature are provided.

Criteria to pass

Students have to collect points during the course. Exams or reviewed programming challenges will be announced one week in advance!

For example, every student has to write at least one protocol and to give one experience presentation at the beginning of a session. Furthermore, there will be two Linux command line tests.

Application

The number of participants is limited to 12 students. Please register per email (markus.schmidberger at rostlab.org) to the contact persons as soon as possible: first-come first-serve.
