Setting up a Bioinformatics Summer School

As part of the TrainMALTA EU project activities, I volunteered/was tasked with setting up the IT infrastructure for the HTS (or NGS) bioinformatics summer school. It has been quite an experience, and the whole setup is far from trivial – so I thought I’d document parts of it here. Habitually, I turned to google to search what others in my shoes have done and nothing turned up. Nothing on google – this setup must be worth documenting!
