How do you achieve computational throughput?
BDGP computing power
- Sun Ultra 450 (3 machines, 4 processors each)
- Sun Enterprise (1 machine, 8 processors)
- Used these directly, without any system for distributed computing.
Job flow control: the Genomic Daemon
- Automatic batch analysis of genomic clones
- Berkeley Fly Database is used for queuing system and storage of results
- Many clones can be analyzed simultaneously
- Results are processed and saved in XML format for interactive browsing
