Dr. Meg Staton and her lab offer computational genomics consulting to all faculty, staff, and students at UTIA. The consulting is led by Matt Huff, M.Sc., a research associate with over 4 years of experience in bioinformatics consulting and a Ph.D. candidate.
If you have any questions about a computational analysis, we offer weekly office hours. If you would prefer to meet through Zoom or at a different time, contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a Zoom link.
Office Hours Fall 2021: Tuesdays from 1 to 2:30 PM, PBB 118.
Past consulting has included these topics:
- Genome or Transcriptome Assembly
- Gene Annotation
- Differential Expression Analysis
- Variant Calling (SNPs, InDels, SVs)
- Generating SSR Markers
- Small RNA Analysis
- How to Order Sequencing (Platform, Depth, Price, etc.)
If what you need isn’t on the list, we are still happy to meet with you and talk through possible support options.
We are excited to announce the UTIA Computational Resources, which consists of two new computers dedicated to intensive computational projects:
- Centaur (centaur.ag.utk.edu): 96 Cores, 512 Gb RAM, 200 Tb iSCSI storage.
- Sphinx (sphinx.ag.utk.edu): 64 Cores, 512 Gb RAM, 70 Tb SSD storage.
Our goal is to provide a more flexible system than what is currently available with ISAAC; you will not be required to run jobs through a scheduling system.
We require anyone who wants to use these resources to go through an orientation presentation. Contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your orientation. General documentation, tutorials, and FAQs can be found on our GitHub wiki.
