April 20 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM - Rawls Hall, Room 1011
BLAST, the popular bioinformatics software, is now available to Purdue faculty and their students through a new graphical user interface running on Purdue’s DiaGrid distributed computing system. DiaGrid can make thousands of processors available at once for BLAST jobs — at no cost to Purdue users.
The web-based tool, called BLASTer, is nearing its official 1.0 release. A beta version has been available for testing for the past two months. Users can try it by visiting the BLASTer site at http://diagrid.hubzero.org/resources/blastgui.
