An example on how to load BAM file and preview sequence information (in R Markdown). Source code for the R Markdown Notebook is available at a GitHub repository.
I wanted to learn how to configure a proxy for Jupyter Notebook with Nginx. For such test, it was easier to use dockerized environment rather than a remote server because the configuration could be simply reset to the defaults. The final, working version of the setup: nginx, Jupyter Notebook, Ubuntu, docker, is available at my GitLab repository. Source of the […]

Previously I described how to use GNU screen to run bash commands in background. In addition to that, if sometimes it happens that a detached command terminates before completion, we would like to have logs for that command, e.g., in order to determine why and when an error occurred. This post explains how to log the progress of a command […]
Recently I needed to quickly perform a one sample t-test in an Excel spreadsheet. Unfortunately, this functionality is not implemented in Excel by default. However, I found a very nice post by Zach at Statology on how to calculate this test using some build-in Excel functions and objects. For my convenience what I did was to put the whole procedure […]
Sometimes running a bash command on the server can take several hours to complete. In such cases you would like to run the command in background and close the terminal from which the command was started (without terminating the process itself). The best way to achieve that is to use GNU screen’s detaching utility. In order to run and detach […]
The goal of this post is to explain how to use general linear model in Python and C. It is assumed that the reader has basic understanding of the regression inference. Introduction Why are we using Python and C in this example? Python code is often said to be an “executable pseudocode”, i.e., Python syntax is relatively easy to read […]
It is very important to set password for your instance. Why? Otherwise, if, e.g., something will go wrong with you network interface, you will not be able to access the instance via VNC console. Hence, you will not be able to access your instance at all, at least from the OpenStack’s web GUI. Although it is of course possible to […]
