ARCC runs a High Performance Computing Cluster named Teton at University of Wyoming where it offers FREE (!!!) accounts to those interested in doing computational intensive analysis of large scale data, including those generated with genomics technologies.
Apply Here for a computing account on the Teton System. The linked web page will allow you to either create a new project space with associated accounts or request addition of a staff member (student, postdoc, scientisit, tech etc.) to your existing project. Remember only a principal investigator can place a request here.
Additionally, INBRE’s heavy investment in Teton condominium model (short: condo) means that as a biological scientist, you can get priority access on INBRE owned resources. What does condo access entail you ask?
- Highest priority access to the 20 fat nodes owned by INBRE and serviced by ARCC
- 128 GB RAM per node
- Two, 8-core processors per node
- Ten nodes with 32-Core (2.1GHz 3.0 Turbo) 240 GB local SSD, InfiniBand Haswell procs
- Exclusive access to HUGEMEM (1024 GB RAM) nodes, useful for de novo genome assembly from fragment reads and complex phylogenetic analyses
- 1 node, 8-Core, 3.5 GHz
- 2 nodes, 32-Core (2.1 GHz, 3.0 Turbo) 240 GB local SSD InfiniBand Haswell
- Technical support from ARCC with regard to software and Teton usage
- Informatics support from us (a.k.a. The Bioinformatics Core)
- Access to this infrastructure can be requested by filling out the
Prefer to work on a workstation instead?
If you prefer to work on your local workstation, we can help you get set up with that as well. We recommend installing BioBuilds, one of the most popular open source toolkit used in the analysis of biological data.
