Bowtie1 is an ultrafast, memory-efficient short read aligner. It aligns short DNA sequences (reads) to the human genome at a rate of over 25 million 35-bp reads per hour. Bowtie indexes the genome with a Burrows-Wheeler index to keep its memory footprint small: typically about 2.2 GB for the human genome (2.9 GB for paired-end).

The following versions of Bowtie1 are available on OSC clusters:
Collectively, the bedtools utilities are a swiss-army knife of tools for a wide-range of genomics analysis tasks. The most widely-used tools enable genome arithmetic: that is, set theory on the genome. While each individual tool is designed to do a relatively simple task, quite sophisticated analyses can be conducted by combining multiple bedtools operations on the UNIX command line.
While we provide a number of Perl modules, you may need a module we do not provide. If it is a commonly used module, or one that is particularly difficult to compile, you can contact OSC Help for assistance, but we have provided an example below showing how to build and install your own Perl modules. Note, these instructions use "bash" shell syntax; this is our default shell, but if you are using something else (csh, tcsh, etc), some of the syntax may be different.
NWChem aims to provide its users with computational chemistry tools that are scalable both in their ability to treat large scientific computational chemistry problems efficiently, and in their use of available parallel computing resources from high-performance parallel supercomputers to conventional workstation clusters.

ABINIT is a package whose main program allows one to find the total energy, charge density and electronic structure of systems made of electrons and nuclei (molecules and periodic solids) within Density Functional Theory (DFT), using pseudopotentials and a planewave or wavelet basis.
"Condo model" refers to an arrangment when a client leases one or more compute nodes for the shared cluster while OSC provides all infrastructure, as well as maintenance and services. BMI's Condo on the Owens Cluster is leased by the Biomedical Informatics Institute at The Ohio State University.
On Owens, the condo specifications are:
An eligible principal investigator (PI) heads a project account and can authorize/remove user accounts under the project account (please check our Allocations and Accounts documentation for more details). This document shows you how to identify users on a project account and check the status of each user.
Glenn Cluster Retired: March 24, 2016
The Glenn Cluster supercomputer has been retired from service to make way for a much more powerful new system. As an OSC client, the removal of the cluster will result in work being added to the heavy workload being handled by Oakley or Ruby, potentially impacting you.
