...without knowing a lot more about your scenario its hard to give any good recommendations...

If you're not producing large volumes of primary data from devices in house you might want to see if  Amazon EC2 to see if it might fit your needs.

Subject: [Bioclusters] Recommendations for building a cluster


What would be your recommendations for building a cluster of ~20-30 
machines with a budget of about $50K?

I think more medium power machines would provide higher throughput than
fewer super power machines, especially, while performing genome-wide 

What would you recommend for hardware brands and specs and OS?

Thanks in advance!
