Bioclusters -- HPC in Bioinformatics


About Bioclusters
English (USA)

This list is a forum for users, builders and programmers of distributed systems used in life science research and bioinformatics.

Our attempt to build up this community is due largely to the fact that the way biologists build and leverage clusters, compute farms and distributed computation platforms is in some ways significantly different from traditional HPC and "beowulf-style" approaches that are well known, well supported and well documented.

The goal is to hopefully build up a critical mass of subscribers and contributors so that we can trade tips, tricks & advice specific to our chosen domains and fields.
