HTC-Grid – examining the operational characteristics of the high throughput compute grid blueprint

The HTC-Grid blueprint meets the challenges that financial services industry (FSI) organizations for high throughput computing on AWS. This post goes into detail on the operational characteristics (latency, throughput, and scalability) of HTC-Grid to help you to understand if this solution meets your needs.

Benchmarking the Oxford Nanopore Technologies basecallers on AWS

Oxford Nanopore sequencers enables direct, real-time analysis of long DNA or RNA fragments. They work by monitoring changes to an electrical current as nucleic acids are passed through a protein nanopore. The resulting signal is decoded to provide the specific DNA or RNA sequence by virtue of  compute-intensive algorithms called basecallers. This blog post presents the benchmarking results for two of those Oxford Nanopore basecallers — Guppy and Dorado — on AWS. This benchmarking project was conducted in collaboration between G42 Healthcare, Oxford Nanopore Technologies and AWS.
