Compute Chicken learns to use the National Grid Service

submitted by: annakcroft

The National Grid Service (NGS) in the UK is a great resource available to academics wanting to speed up lengthy calculations using grid-based computing. The NGS have recently launched a new website with easy to access tools. This tutorial shows you how to log in using these tools, and quickly get started to run your own jobs using the new NGS broker system.

So easy, even a chicken could do it!

BioHDF - Toward Scalable Bioinformatics Infrastructures

submitted by: mark_welsh

The huge volume of data produced by novel sequencing technologies presents significant challenges around data transmission, storage, bioinformatics analysis, visualization, and archiving. Widespread adoption of Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) will be hindered if bioinformatics software cannot scale to meet these challenges.
