Matlab Coder available at CWRU

posted Jun 12, 2014, 2:06 PM by Hadrian Djohari   [ updated Jun 16, 2014, 1:30 PM ]

Matlab Coder is now available for a CWRU user, including in the HPC cluster. Matlab coder is a very useful tool to convert your Matlab code to a C/C++ codes, either to convert it completely or to use part of the function to merge it with a different code snippet. More information about Matlab Coder on the Mathworks. The manual (preparation, acceleration, code generation) quick start guides for Matlab 2013b can be downloaded from the /usr/local/doc/MATLAB directory.

Find the Relion documentation here.

RELION ( stands for REgularised LIkelihood OptimisatioN and is a program used for cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) processing. The software was developed from Sjors H.W. Schere's Lab at MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. So far, the program has been used to resolve large macromolecular cryo-EM structures like ribosomes

Introduction to High Performance Computing at OSC

We are planning to offer our popular introductory workshop on OSC resources just once this semester. This two-and-a-half hour workshop will provide an introduction to OSC resources and how to access them, and is intended for new users or researchers who may not already have accounts but are interested in learning about OSC resources. The workshop will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23 in BALE Theater at the Ohio Supercomputer Center, 1224 Kinnear Road in Columbus. 

Introduction to Linux/UNIX workshop   

OSC will be offering a workshop for users new to Linux environments, to help you more effectively use our HPC resources. Topics include logging in and out, directory structure, wildcards, paths, file permissions, editors, and more. This workshop will be held on Thursday, Jan. 30 in  BALE Theater at OSC and runs from 1:30-4 p.m. 

XSEDE HPC Monthly Workshop - Big Data

XSEDE and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center will be presenting a one-day "Big Data" workshop onFeb. 4, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Users from around the country will be able to participate in this workshop by registering to attend at their nearest partner site. OSC will be one of those sites. Please visit the XSEDE Portal for more information on this class and to register. You can elect to attend the closest locations in Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center) or in Columbus (OSC). XSEDE account is free.

XSEDE14 Call for Participation

The XSEDE14 conference will be in Atlanta, Ga., on July 13-18, and XSEDE has issued a Call for Participation, including papers in several tracks and a poster session. The first dates to keep in mind are March 15, when tutorial proposals and paper submissions are due, and April 15, when poster, BoF, and Visualization Showcase submissions are due, as well as student travel grant requests. For more details, please see the CFP.
