Birds-of-a-Feather: Accelerated Genomics – Parabricks on HiPerGator

Tuesday, February 14, 2023
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Virtual Event via Zoom

With the overwhelming interest from the UF community in using HiPerGator AI to conduct Artificial Intelligence (AI) research, Research Computing (RC) is continuing its series: Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions. 

This Birds-of-a-Feather session will provide an overview of NVIDIA’s Clara Parabricks software for accelerated secondary analysis in genomics including deep-learning-based tools and user success stories. We will highlight the features of the latest version v4.0 and demo how to use the free version of it on UF’s supercomputer, HiPerGator. Furthermore, we will show how RAPIDS (a pythonic GPU-accelerated data science framework) can accelerate tertiary analysis in genomics.

This event is free, but registration is required in order to attend. The Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants prior to the event.


Additional BOF sessions will cover other topics and we encourage you to submit ideas for BOF groups and topics.
