Dear participants of the TIPP tutorial,

Please follow the instructions on the TIPP tutorial page at https://github.com/smirarab/sepp/blob/master/tutorial/tipp-tutorial.md, and download and install TIPP in advance of the tutorial.

TIPP runs on both Linux and Mac machines. Windows users will need to follow the instructions on the webpage to run TIPP on a virtual machine (VM). Note that the VM file is very large (2.4 GB), so it's important to download it in advance of the tutorial.

One final note is that this VM file is the same file that will be used for the MSA tutorial, so if you've already downloaded this file, you are good to go for both tutorial sessions.

If you have any questions or problems installing TIPP, please email me at ndn006@eng.ucsd.edu.

Thank you, Nam Nguyen
