  • New Approaches to Cloud Bursting: Nextflow & Univa Grid Engine – PII

    Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is a fundamental practice in bioinformatics. Pipelines are comprised of complex, multi-step processes involving many different tools and intermediate data formats.  With easy access to cloud infrastructure and containerized applications that are portable across clouds, users are increasingly extending pipelines to the cloud. In part I of this article, we discussed…
