This is a basic level course on containers which are a modern way of deploying complex applications. In this course, the basics of docker container and its containnerised applications in bioinformatics will be discussed. Emphasis will be given to the deployment of different pre-existing dockerised bio-applications. Selected examples from different omics’ disciplines such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics will be covered. We will introduce HPC-compliant containers in CSC environment.

This introductory course covers single cell RNA-seq data analysis methods, tools and file formats. The free* and user-friendly Chipster software is used in the exercises, and the course is thus suitable for everybody.
