November 2013

SPRINT version 1.0.5 released. Apart from general bug fixes and updates, this release:

- added "pstringdistmatrix", which allows calculation of distances between character strings (e.g. nucleotide sequences)

- compliant with Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard 3

May 2013

In partnership with PRACE, training in the use of SPRINT for post-genomics analysis will be held at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre on May 29th and 30th, 2013.

The course will include:

  1. An Introduction to SPRINT
  2. An overview of SPRINT functionality and instruction in how to run analyses
  3. Guidance on how to install SPRINT
  4. An opportunity for all attendees to run SPRINT analyses on the UK supercomputer HECToR
