Genetic Analysis of Metapopulation Processes in the Silene-Microbotryum Host-Pathogen System

Project ID
Project Categories
Life Science
The purpose of this project is to utilize high-throughput computing to conduct statistical genetic analysis on metapopulation dynamics of the invasive plant, Silene latifolia. The programs were not coded in his lab. He requested the help of UVa Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering (UVACSE) in in running his analyses.
Use of FutureSystems
Using Genesis II software already configured on FutureGrid resources to perform computation
Scale of Use
Several runs of 100 jobs per run, each taking approximately 2 hours
