A brief update on resources required for long read assembly

Canu v1.6 resources required for 1.4Gb genome assembly

Currently running an assembly with ~60X coverage based on the RSII and Sequel long read data.

Raw data is first converted to fasta and quiver/arrow using Dextract (Dazzler suite). 500 more words

Front Panel Software

The front panel of RAIN-PSC serves three essential purposes:

  1. Show the status of each node
  2. Show the load on each node
  3. Look really cool

The panel is actually eight individual control panels (one for each node in the cluster). 533 more words


Is AI turning all data computing to essentially HPC?

I remember my first stint with HPC, in year 2001 when I was working as a scientist in Bhabha Atomic Research Center. Lots and Lots of machines lined up and configured to work as a unified cluster, accessing the data over NFS. 589 more words

i2c Front Panel

Switching from individual full-size PINE64 boards to the Clusterboard necessitates a change to the electronics for RAIN-PSC’s front panel. The original plan was to use GPIO pins on each board to directly interface with the LED’s and switches on the panel, but the Clusterboard exposes far fewer pins for each compute module, so another approach is required. 669 more words
