Event Details

Containerisation is a method of bundling an application or pipeline with all its dependencies, from language runtimes like Python and R to the operating system itself. This technology has already revolutionised web development by providing a simple way to run web applications a in precisely controlled environment, regardless of which computer system they are running on. This workshop will explain how these advantages can be easily applied to bioinformatics analysis, to ensure 100% reproducibility of your work, along with easy distribution of your pipelines to other users without the need for complex installation.


This workshop will teach you:

  • What containerisation is, and why you might use it in bioinformatics
  • What some common containerisation tools are, and when to use each of them
  • How to find and run containers built by other people
  • How to run containers on HPC systems (like Melbourne Bioinformatics)
  • How to build your own application into a container (containerisation)
  • How to use containers as elements of a bioinformatics pipeline
  • How to distribute your container online


This workshop is aimed at anyone with basic Unix command-line experience.

 

Attendees are required to bring their own laptop computers.
