Welcome to the lab! This page organizes topics of interest to group members, our collaborators and anyone else who wishes to access our cluster via ssh. If you are not a member of the lab, please see Welcome web user. If you have ssh access, Category:Internal articles may be of interest to you.

New Lab Members

If you have just joined the lab, here's what you need to know:

  1. Ask the sysadmins for an account on the cluster, and a workstation. Tell us what account name you prefer.
  2. Set up a public key so you can login from off campus.
  3. Make sure you are on the mailing list yall, ask a sysadmin if you are not.
  4. Get set up with github / lab tools.

Info

Best Practices

Computers

Please see our cluster page. You might be interested to know about the types of disk we currently support.

In Cluster 2, you log in to sgehead.ucsf.bkslab.org aka gimel.compbio.ucsf.edu. If you need fortran, ssh to fortran. If you need ppilot, ssh to ppilot. You should not need to log in to any other machine.

In Cluster 0, you log in to sgehead.bkslab.org. You should be able to do everything from there.

Access from home

Synchrotron trips

We can help arrange to store your data in a safe place. Ask before you leave.

Third party software and databases

See the main article on third party software that we maintain on our cluster.

Updates

Some software must be updated or at least attended to annually due to license expiry. Otherwise, we generally update software on an as-needed basis. If you want something updated, ask us and give us some time. Even better, if you can take the lead, it will get done faster almost for sure.

When you leave the lab

Please discuss with John one month before you leave the lab to agree on which of your files will remain, and where they will live. We can provide you with portable disks so you can take software and data with you, if you like. If you want to take the lab software with you, we can help with that too.
