They are available through NCI’s National Environmental Research Data Interoperability Platform (NERDIP), which provides an integrated platform for users to access datasets managed at NCI. At the high-performance data training session, we will offer an introduction to NCI’s research data collections and jupyter notebook examples on accessing data through various services and platforms.

The NCI User Services group will present training with a focus on helping new and current users to get started on the new HPC system. Two training courses will be offered:

  • Getting Started – for new users
  • Transitioning from Raijin – for Raijin users
