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

Virtual Event Virtual Event

April 18, 2024 @ 10:00 11:00 CEST

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 the EuroHPC National Competence Centre Sweden (ENCCS).

Title: Leveraging supercomputers for data-driven life science research: examples of use cases and introduction to Berzelius

Speaker: Soumi Chaki and Xuan Gu (National Supercomputer Centre, Linköping University), Kimmo Kartasalo (Karolinska Institute), Claudio Mirabello (Linköping University).

Where and when: April 18, 2024 at 10:00-11:00 Stockholm time, online. Registration is open till April 18 at 9:00.


10:00-10:05 – Introduction to supercomputers and Berzelius
10:05-10:20 – Developing computational pathology AI models for improved prostate cancer diagnostics and prognostics using Berzelius (Kimmo Kartasalo, Post-doctoral researcher, Karolinska Institute)
10:20-10:35 – Modelling large protein complexes on Berzelius (Claudio Mirabello, Principal Research Engineer, Docent, Linköping University)
10:35-10:50 – Resource allocation procedure and user support available on Berzelius
10:50-11:00 – Q&A session

Powerful GPU supercomputers allow to carry out large-scale experiments in a fraction of time that it would otherwise take as well as 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. In this one hour long webinar two researchers will present how they use Berzelius in their work and what research it allows them to carry out. In addition, 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.

More about the event series:

Tools for AI/ML research in life sciences is an event series by the SciLifeLab Data Centre aimed at life science researchers who use machine learning methods in their work. The goal of the events in this series is to provide introductions to different tools for ML research but also to foster discussions around our practices and how they can be improved. The events takes place virtually (over Zoom) and are open to researchers in Sweden and beyond. Each event is scheduled for 60 minutes, consisting of a talk and an extended discussion. Follow the page of the event series to learn about future seminars.
