Globus is a data transfer service designed for convenient, fast file transferes between computer systems. More information about using Globus on MSI can be found here. These command line tools provide an alternative interface to the Globus functionality.
Python is a high level programming language that aims to combine remarkable power with very clear syntax. PyPy is an alternative implementation of the Python language that uses a Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler to run certain types of code much faster than the standard implementation.
SPADE: Spanning Tree Progression of Density Normalized Events
SPADE is a visualization and analysis tool for high-dimensional flow cytometry data. SPADE is implemented as an R package.
BCFtools are meant as a faster replacement for most of the perl VCFTools commands.
AbokiaBLAST is a parallel implementation of NCBI BLAST created by the inventors of the open-source mpiBLAST project. AbokiaBLAST inherits the super-scalable architecture from mpiBLAST but is re-factored and re-engineered to offer production quality. With intelligent task parallelization and I/O optimization, AbokiaBLAST enables users to massively accelerate large-scale BLAST search on clusters or supercomputers with a single command.
Due to the license, AbokiaBLAST is only installed in Itasca so far.
Python is a high level programming language that aims to combine remarkable power with very clear syntax. Anaconda is a free cross-platform Python distribution from Continuum Analytics. It comes built in with various scientific Python packages such as NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Numba, etc.
mpiBLAST is a freely available, open-source, parallel implementation of NCBI BLAST. mpiBLAST takes advantage of distributed computational resources, i.e., a cluster, through explicit MPI communication and thereby utilizes all available resources unlike standard NCBI BLAST which can only take advantage of shared-memory multi-processor computers. The primary advantage to using mpiBLAST versus traditional NCBI BLAST is performance.
