City Basel


This course is aimed at sciCORE users who are new to the use of Linux and high-performance infrastructures. Within a very practical focus, we will provide the tools needed to use the Linux command line and to interact with the sciCORE cluster. All new users of sciCORE are strongly encouraged to follow this course.


Each participant should bring their own laptop with WiFi, and have a valid sciCORE account. Registration with the University of Basel and a valid unibas email account is required. Members of the Unibas community can request a sciCORE account with an email to scicore-admin[at] (please indicate your research group).

We recommend to install MobaXterm (Windows) or XQuartz (Mac) in order to have X11 tunneling capabilities enabled.
