LabArchives for Researchers

Join this 60-minute session to learn how to quickly and easily create a LabArchives notebook to manage your research data securely online. Other topics covered will include access management, adding and managing content, and collaboration tools. 

With so many of our researchers forced to work remotely and ramp-down lab activities, now is a good time to consider using LabArchives to do the following: 

  • Setup notebook structures and organize data  
  • Add Protocols or datasets that are not currently stored in LabArchives
  • Discuss or update data management policies
  • Build Templates or widgets
  • Review literature and add links or upload articles to LA

Previous Events and Workshops

Recordings of the RIS Virtual Workshops on Scientific Compute can be found in WUSTL Box:

https://wustl.box.com/s/egbt8fxje2ztrd8ow7ilmo4gpqj4yvjj


These seminars and workshops  provided an opportunity for Researchers, their Staff, and Student Researchers to become familiar with the RIS group, services such as storage, compute, applications and consulting resources through workshops in high-performance GPU parallel processing development and use.   It is intended that researchers can pick and choose the topics according to their interest and relative experience. 

The end goal was to provide the relevant skills to introduce researchers into using NVIDIA GPUs using python with an introduction to Data Science and Genomics.

Schedule – April 13, 2020 through April 22, 2020

Technical trainers from Research Infrastructure Services and NVIDIA

Some were hands-on using the WashU high-performance compute and storage environment.
