NCGAS provides access to the following high-performance computing resources:
Request allocation of computing time and disk storage (default allocation 10 Gigabytes) on the Carbonate cluster, the IU compute cluster (replacing Mason) – if you are an NSF-funded researcher (or your research is relevant to the NSF’s mission) at a US-based accredited institution of higher education or federal research lab.
Request allocation of computing time on the PSC Bridges system through NCGAS – if you fall under the NCGAS user group and need more memory to complete your jobs, you can fill out this application to be added to our Bridges allocation. It will require an XSEDE and PSC username (see link).
Request access to the Trinity Galaxy instance run by NCGAS. This instance of Galaxy is supported by three dedicated large memory nodes and is provisioned with transcriptome assembly and analysis software.
Request allocation of computing time on the PSC Bridges system or XSEDE's Jetstream system – if you are a researcher or educator at a U.S.-based accredited institution of higher education, including federal research labs or commercial organizations through an XSEDE allocation. This does not require genomics work but does require an application to XSEDE in general.
Get started on Jetstream, the XSEDE cloud computer housed in part at IU - any U.S. based researcher can use this, it is not just for genomics/biology!
Data management is an important part of every project and NCGAS staff can help
Data Transfer- IU clusters have an active paid Globus subscription, allowing users to use Globus to transfer data between the clusters (Carbonate, Karst) to your local computer, or Scholarly Data Archive(SDA). Globus is a research management service to help transfer terabytes of data quickly. For help on using Globus, read the blog posts, Getting started on Globus, setting up Globus endpoint on Jetstream
Data Storage Plan- NCGAS provides solutions to both long-term and short-term data management plans.
Reference databases- NCGAS also makes available commonly used reference data sets for referenced-based assembly, alignment, and other tasks, on the Data Capacitor.
