Caelen Feller, a PRACE Summer of HPC (SoHPC) student working with Wee Archie, gives us an overview and status report of his project.
As I have said previously, I’m working with Wee ARCHIE, EPCC's mini supercomputer, this summer. Wee Archie is made of 16 Raspberry Pi chips – each very small, lightweight computers connected together to work as a single machine. With each chip is an attached LED panel, allowing me to display what is occurring on the chip and how it is communicating to other chips. I have created a series of tutorials and simple demonstrations to be run on Wee Archie which explain the basics of message passing using MPI to a complete novice in parallel computing and non-expert in computers in general.

A multi-disciplinary team of biologists, bioinformaticians and research software engineers based at EPCC and The Wallace Lab at University of Edinburgh, The Shah Lab at Rutgers University, and The Lareau Lab at University of California, Berkeley, will enhance and extend a software suite called RiboViz to extract biological insight from "ribosome profiling" data and drive forward understanding of protein synthesis.

ARCHER Training report Summer 2019
So, it's been another busy end to the academic year and summer training season for the ARCHER Training team.
Since June we have managed to cram in no less than twelve training courses, in locations from London to Leeds, and Oxford to EPCC here in Edinburgh.
