Kbase is currently in alpha release and is targeted for full production release in early 2013.The community-driven and scalable open-source system is intended to provide a framework for evidence-based functional annotation of genome sequences. It will also enable the creation of metabolic and regulatory models that may be used to generate scientific hypotheses; as well… [Read More]

BGI will provide a range of services and support for the Earth Microbiome Project, an effort to sample, sequence, and analyze microbial communities from all over the globe. The multi-disciplinary EMP effort, the largest sequencing project yet undertaken, will conduct metagenomics studies of 200,000 samples of microbes from soil, air, sea, and freshwater systems from… [Read More]
We were glad to see DOE’s Magellan project getting some well-deserved recognition by the HPCwire Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Award at SC10 in New Orleans. Magellan investigates how cloud computing can help DOE researchers to manage the massive (and increasing) amount of data they generate in scientific collaborations. Magellan is a joint research project at… [Read More]
One of the first key users of NERSC’s Magellan cloud computing system was DOE’s Joint Genome Institute (JGI). In March, the facility had a sudden need for increased computing resources, and in less than three days, NERSC and JGI staff provisioned and configured hundreds of processor cores on the Magellan system to match the computing… [Read More]
