Next Generation Sequencing in the Cloud

Project ID
Project Categories
Life Science
We will use this work to analyze next generation sequencing (NGS) algorithms and workflows in the cloud.
Use of FutureSystems
Create virtual clusters in the Futuregrid Eucalyptus environments to test a variety of NGS software and algorithms as well as explore architecture decisions such as storage options.
Scale of Use
I will request a few VMs for an experiment when initially testing. To perform some tests at small scale, I may request 10s of VMs for a virtual cluster. The time the VMs will run will be dependent on the analysis and/or workflow being tested.
