  • Quantifying Calcium Oscillations

    Calcium oscillations signify communication between zona glomerulosa cells of the mouse adrenal gland. Researchers in the Barrett Lab can capture these oscillatory events with calcium imaging, but they had difficulty analyzing the results. The Barrett Lab was in need of a comprehensive MATLAB program for quantitative analysis of the intracellular calcium signals from their cell imaging experiments. Prior to Research Computing’s involvement in the project, the Barrett Lab had been using fragments of code to analyze their data with little success. Research Computing developed a MATLAB application to create an efficient, centralized workflow that is also accessible to people who are new to MATLAB and programming.

  • Matlab on Rivanna

    MATLAB is an integrated technical computing environment from the MathWorks that combines array-based numeric computation, advanced graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. Separately licensed toolboxes provide additional domain-specific functionality. Mathworks provides MATLAB examples and tutorials for all experience levels here. Available Versions To find the available versions and learn how to load them, run: module spider matlab The output of the command shows the available MATLAB module versions. To load the most recent version of MATLAB , at the terminal window prompt run: module load matlab For detailed information about a particular MATLAB module, including how to load the module, run the module spider command with the module’s full version label.
  • Data Analysis Packages on Ivy Linux VM

    Available Packages The following Data Analysis packages are available on the Ivy Linux Virtual Machines MATLAB MATrix LABoratory (MATLAB for short) is a software designed for quick scientific calculations, such as matrix manipulation, plotting, and others. It has hundreds of built-in functions for a wide variety of computations and several tools designed for specific research disciplines, including statistics and partial differential equations.

    • Limited licenses available, for more information on MATLAB and licensing, please click [here] (/userinfo/ivy-linux-sw/data-analysis/matlab) SAS SAS is large platform independent software with multiple components, and is used for statistical analysis, data ETL operations, as well as several other reporting problems.

  • UVa Licensed MATLAB on Ivy Windows Virtual Machines

    MATLAB Overview MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming environment. MATLAB stands for MATrix LABoratory. MATLAB was made to provide easy access to matrix software developed by the LINPACK (linear system package) and EISPACK (Eigen system package) projects. MATLAB includes a programming language environment with built-in editing and debugging tools, and supports object-oriented programming. Programming in MATLAB MATLAB has many advantages compared to conventional computer languages (e.g., C, FORTRAN) for solving technical problems. MATLAB is an interactive system whose basic data element is an array, and almost all problems can be solved in MATLAB using that one data element.
