We have one high performance computing (HPC) cluster for bioinformatics data storage and analysis: NGS Galaxy cluster for next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis.
NGS Galaxy Cluster:
Recently we assembled a new NGS Galaxy cluster for NGS data analysis to support new Illumina MiSeq sequencer at Molecular Research Core Facility (MRCF). This cluster is rack-mounted and includes:
- A head node with two Xeon six-core X6560 (2.7GHz) processors, 48GB RAM, and 50TB directly attached storage space (RAID).
- Two compute nodes with dual eight-core Xeon E5-2680 processors (2.7GHz), 128GB RAM and one NVIDIA K20 Tesla GPUs.
- Four compute nodes with dual quad-core Xeon E5620 processors (2.4GHz), 12 GB RAM, and 1TB local storage space
- A 16-port Gigabit Ethernet switch.
Total cluster cores: 156
Total cluster storage: 50TB
NGS Galaxy Cluster software:
- The Galaxy cluster is designed for analysis of next-gen sequencing data. The web workflow system called Galaxy is used as the interface for users to access the cluster. Command-line access to the cluster is possible too. A whole suite of NGS programs are installed on the cluster for next generation sequencing data analysis. Those programs include sequence assembly programs, RNA-seq data analysis programs, ChIP-seq data analysis programs, and many other NGS data analysis tools.
