Félix-Antoine Fortin from Calcul Québec gives an introduction to high-performance computing with the Compute Canada network, first providing an overview of use cases for HPC and then a hand-on tutorial. Though some examples might seem specific to the Calcul Québec, all computing clusters in the Compute Canada network share the same software modules and environments.
The lesson was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal is a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.
In this video, Samir Das and Tristan Glatard give a short overview of the main features of the CONP Portal.
Shawn Brown presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance-computing facilities across Canada and around the world.
This talk was given in the context of a Ludmer Centre event in 2019.
Lecture on functional brain parcellations and a set of tutorials on bootstrap agregation of stable clusters (BASC) for fMRI brain parcellation which were part of the 2019 Neurohackademy, a 2-week hands-on summer institute in neuroimaging and data science held at the University of Washington eScience Institute.
As models in neuroscience have become increasingly complex, it has become more difficult to share all aspects of models and model analysis, hindering model accessibility and reproducibility. In this session, we will discuss existing resources for promoting FAIR data and models in computational neuroscience, their impact on the field, and the remaining barriers. This lecture covers how FAIR practices affect personalized data models, including workflows, challenges, and how to improve these practices.
Much like neuroinformatics, data science uses techniques from computational science to derive meaningful results from large complex datasets. In this session, we will explore the relationship between neuroinformatics and data science, by emphasizing a range of data science approaches and activities, ranging from the development and application of statistical methods, through the establishment of communities and platforms, and through the implementation of open-source software tools. Rather than rigid distinctions, in the data science of neuroinformatics, these activities and approaches intersect and interact in dynamic ways. Together with a panel of cutting-edge neuro-data-scientist speakers, we will explore these dynamics
This lecture covers how brainlife.io works, and how it can be applied to neuroscience data.
