We are pleased to announce that Charlotte Herzeel from imec is invited to give a talk on the elPrep tool at the next (IB)² Seminar on March 20, 2015. The title of the talk is elPrep: high-performance preparation of sequence alignment/map files for variant calling: elPrep is a high-performance tool for preparing sequence alignment/map files [...]
The book High Performance Parallelism Pearls by Reinders and Jeffers (Intel) has been published by Elsevier. The book contains many examples of programming techniques proven successful on the Intel Xeon Phi. From our lab, Albert-Jan Yzelman, Dirk Roose, and Karl Meerbergen have contributed with a chapter on “Sparse matrix-vector multiplication: parallelization and vectorization”. A review [...]
On May 26 & 27 2014, the ExaScience Life Lab organized the “High Performance Computing (HPC) for Life Sciences” event in Brussels. Three videos were made about this event that we are happy to share with you (you can also find them in the ExaScience Life Lab Youtube Channel). A first video has interviews with [...]
We are proud to announce that one of the members of our lab will give the closing keynote at this week’s EuroQSAR 2014 event: Jörg Kurt Wegner from Johnson & Johnson in Beerse will talk about “Large-Scale Chemogenomics in Pharma – Definition, Benchmarking, and Application” on Thursday September 4.
ExaScience Life Lab, the Flemish Supercomputer Center and imec academy are pleased to announce a tutorial on the PGAS API GASPI, on October 1, at imec. Attendance is free of charge but you have to register via the Imec Academy page (use the ‘Request’ button to register). The number of places is limited. GASPI, which [...]
We have just released elPrep, a high-performance tool for preparing SAM/BAM/CRAM files in sequencing pipelines. It can be used as a replacement for standard tools, such as SAMtools and Picard, for preparation steps such as sorting, marking duplicates, reordering contigs, and so on, while producing identical results. elPrep is designed as a multi-threaded applications that [...]
A quick newsflash: Yves Moreau (one of our new lab partners in the recently launched ExaScience Life lab) gave a TEDx talk on 28 October on work in genomics. You can check it out here: http://www.tedxbrussels.eu/yves-moreau. Enjoy !
If you fancy some science to go along with your christmass shopping you may consider to attend the Workshop ‘New Algorithms for Exascale Computing‘ (December 04 – 06, 2013, Cologne, Germany), where Albert-Jan N. Yzelman will give two talks: Shared-Memory Parallel Sparse Matrix–Vector Multiplication (with Dirk Roose) A highly-scalable Multi-BSP fast Fourier transform (with Rob [...]
Several members of the lab were quite active at the ParCo2013 conference, that was held from 10 to 13 September in München: Dirk Roose organised a mini-symposium on Space-Filling Curves in parallel computing. Albert-Jan N. Yzelman gave a talk on Space-filling curves in sparse matrix–vector multiplication. Wim Vanroose gave a talk on Increasing arithmetic intensity [...]
