Presenter: Dr. Sam Waterworth, Molecular Targets Program, NCI.

Crunching of large data requires large resources. Exploration of holobiont metagenomes is considered a “big data” project and here I’ll be describing how I used the FRCE cluster to explore 794 metagenomes simultaneously to assess the biosynthetic capacity associated with lichens. This presentation will focus more on computational tools and techniques used to solve problems than on the project results. This presentation is aimed at beginner to intermediate users. Basic understanding of Bash and Slurm would be beneficial but not vital. 

This will be a hybrid event. To register, please visit the following link:

This session will be recorded, and materials will be shared with attendees a few days after the event.
