Bridges Supporting Galaxy RNA Assemblies

Users Can Run Trinity RNA-Seq Assembly Jobs on XSEDE from Galaxy Main

Researchers preparing de novo transcriptome assemblies via the popular Galaxy platform for data-intensive analysis now have transparent access to a premier HPC resource ideal for rapid assembly of massive RNA sequence data. A high-performance Trinity tool has been installed on the public Galaxy Main instance at usegalaxy.org. All Trinity jobs in workflows run from usegalaxy.org will execute transparently on large memory nodes on the Bridges system at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, without the need for users to obtain their own XSEDE allocation. These tools are free to use for open scientific research. Additional de novo assembly applications will be added to Galaxy Main in the future. For more information about Galaxy and Bridges see https://galaxyproject.org/ and http://www.psc.edu/index.php/bridges.
