This page includes a summary of differences to keep in mind when migrating jobs from Oakley or Ruby to Owens
R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is similar to the S language and environment developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies). R provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.
C, C++ and Fortran are supported on the Owens cluster. Intel, PGI and GNU compiler suites are available. The Intel development tool chain is loaded by default. Compiler commands and recommended options for serial programs are listed in the table below. See also our compilation guide.
On July 12th, 2016 OSC migrated its old GPFS and Lustre filesystems to new Project and Scratch services, respectively. We've moved 1.22 PB of data, and the new capacities are 3.4 PB for Project, and 1.1 PB for Scratch. If you store data on these services, there are a few important details to note.
Bowtie 2 is an ultrafast and memory-efficient tool for aligning sequencing reads to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s of characters, and particularly good at aligning to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes. Bowtie 2 indexes the genome with an FM Index to keep its memory footprint small: for the human genome, its memory footprint is typically around 3.2 GB.
