Leveraging supercomputers for data-driven life science research: examples from Berzelius

Apr 18 10:00 - 11:00 CEST

Life science and supercomputing

Powerful GPU supercomputers allow us to carry out large-scale life science experiments in a fraction of the time that it would otherwise take. They also allow us to pursue research projects that would otherwise not be possible. Life science researchers at Swedish universities can apply and make use of the Berzelius AI/ML cluster at the National Supercomputer Center in Linköping.

What you will hear about

In this one-hour-long webinar, two researchers will present how they use Berzelius in their work. We will present the technical specifications of Berzelius, the resource allocation procedure, as well as the available user support. We will give a short demonstration on how to request GPU resources on Berzelius and run scripts/software on the allocated GPU(s). This webinar is particularly tailored for researchers interested in and working with AI/ML methods.

This event is part of the Tools for AI/ML research in life sciences event series arranged by the SciLifeLab Data Centre. This webinar is organized in collaboration with the National Supercomputer Centre, LiU as well as ENCCS.
