Use of Genomics Server (EBD-CSIC)

EBD has bought an IBM Xseries 3690 X5 server in 2011. Although current characteristics are quite modest (64 GB RAM), the machine is flexible enough to be upgraded to high-end server full capacities. At this moment, the server allows running processes of moderate computational demand, such as cleaning and pre-processing of sequence reads, mapping, alignment, blast, variant calling on small genomic regions or handling .sam, .bam and .vcf files. The operative system is CentOS release 5.8 (Final) compatible with the software of the 454 Sequencer GS Junior acquired in by the EBD-CSIC in February 2011.

Note, that the total storage space is 8 TB. As it is a shared resource, please remove from it intermediate files you are no longer using and compress big files as soon as possible.

1. Getting an Account

2. Connecting to the Cluster

3. Requirements for Windows OS

4. Requirements for Mac and Linux OS

5. Important: Software Licenses!

6. Server Features

To move around with the command line check the Unix Tutorial here.


Warning: Please add new comments and tricks to solve problems about using the cluster here. Registration is mandatory
