Postdoctoral biology researcher Kirill Borziak and Associate Professor of Biology Steve Dorus, in collaboration with Weeden Professor of Biology Scott Pitnick and Biology Professor John Belote, all in the College of Arts and Sciences, utilized OG to run a covariance analysis of genes from 15 fly species, and AVHE to implement pipelines for assembly and analysis of next-generation sequencing data.
“The number of nodes available on OrangeGrid is impressive. We’ve been using OrangeGrid since October and slowly we are increasing our load,” Borziak says. “As of now, we have 15,000 jobs submitted to OrangeGrid. Our local computer only has 12 core CPUs. The additional nodes from OrangeGrid have sped up our research tremendously.”
