Course Info

This course includes 1 attempt.

Fred Hutch maintains a high performance computing cluster specifically to support research work that requires more intensive computing than your average desktop computer can handle.

Our goal for this course is to get you running on the Fred Hutch cluster quickly and efficiently. It is intended for everyone whether you're completely new to using a cluster, or who may have used a cluster at another institution but are new to Fred Hutch.

The Fred Hutch cluster is supported by a group in IT called Scientific Computing, and this course was developed by the Fred Hutch Data Science Lab in collaboration with them.

We hope that the following modules will help you take advantage of the powerful resources the Fred Hutch has to offer!
