Today, we’re announcing the availability of Spack configs for AWS ParallelCluster. You can use these configurations to install optimized HPC applications quickly and easily on your AWS-powered HPC clusters.
In this post, AWS Professional Services highlights how they helped data scientists from Amazon Logistics rearchitect their algorithm for improving the efficiency of their supply-chain by making better planning decisions. Leveraging best practices for deploying scalable HPC applications on AWS, the teams saw a 4X improvement in run time.
In this blog, we provide a walkthrough of running Illumina DRAGEN v4.0 genomic analysis pipelines on AWS, showing accuracy and efficiency, copy number analysis, structural variants, SMN callers, repeat expansion detection, and pharmacogenomics insights for complex genes. We also highlight some benchmarking results for runtime, cost, and concordance from the Illumina DRAGEN DNA sequencing pipeline.
As a part of AWS’s “Digital Technologies for a Circular Economy” initiative, we joined forces with Accenture, Intel and Good Chemistry to massively scale quantum chemistry simulations. This is the first and most complex step to discovering new pathways for PFAS destruction for a cleaner world.
In this blog post, we benchmark the performance of Sentieon’s DNAseq and DNAscope pipelines using publicly available genomics datasets on AWS. You will gain an understanding of the runtime, cost, and accuracy performance of these germline variant calling pipelines across a wide range of Amazon EC2 instances.
AWS Batch customers often ask for guidance to optimize their architectures and make their workload to scale rapidly. Here we describe an observability solution that provides insights into your AWS Batch architectures and allows you to optimize them for scale and quickly identify potential throughput bottlenecks for jobs and instances.
Calling budding bioinformaticians! If you learn through hands-on practicals and walkthroughs, AWS and GIS have developed training and resources to help you increase the scale and productivity of your research using the AWS cloud.
Today we announced the AWS Impact Computing Project at the Harvard Data Science Initiative (HDSI) to identify potential solutions that can improve the lives of humans, other species, and natural ecosystems. Deb Goldfarb describes its goals and our joint vision.
Today, we discuss AWS batch on Amazon EKS, and the initial motivation and design choices the team made when we developed the service, and some of the challenges to overcome.
Today we are excited to announce that all 9000+ applications provided by the BioContainers community are available within ECR Public Gallery! You don’t need an AWS account to access these images, but having one allows many more pulls to the internet, and unmetered usage within AWS. If you perform any sort of bioinformatics analysis on AWS, you should check it out!
