EASY ACCESS TO HIGH PERFORMANCE

COMPUTING 

FOR WHOLE GENOME SEQUENCE ANALYSES

The Calculation Engine (CE) is your easy access to a high-performance computing (HPC) environment for doing calculation-intensive tasks, including de novo assembly and whole genome multi-locus sequence typing (wgMLST) allele calling, for which it contains an integrated nomenclature service. Additionally, the CE will facilitate for you: reference mapping for SNP analyses, resistance & virulence gene prediction and genome annotation

 

The Calculation Engine runs on a powerful computer cluster, in the cloud, but can also be installed on premise, i.e. on your own server or a private cloud environment, or even run on your local PC!

Why We're Great >

  • Genome Explorer Salmonella spp.: 1 credit

  • Genome Explorer MTBC : 2 credits

Designed to process hundreds of isolates within the hour, providing extremely fast turnaround times for the primary analysis in wgMLST and wgSNP.  Leveraging the Cloud-based CE for your research requires no investment in computer hardware and is almost setup-free.

It is accessible worldwide*.  * We have observed some limitation in Great China due to the country firewall generating some time out during uploads of data. 


The Calculation Engine Credits allow you to select jobs within a menu of analysis types:

  • Reference mapping (wgSNP): 1 credit

  • De novo assembly (wgMLST): 1 credit

 CALCULATION ENGINE  

  • Assembly-free allele calling (wgMLST):  3 credits

  • Assembly-based allele calling (wgMLST): 3 credits

NEW IN BIONUMERICS 8.0

Run basic analyses directly on your PC, even with minimal hardware requirement*, thanks to the local Calculation Engine.

With large sample volumes, it can be beneficial to have your private Calculation Engine, on your institute’s computer cluster or as a private cloud solution. Several influential public health institutes & major industrial customers already benefit from their private CE.

 

For on premise Calculation Engine deployments, we provide installation on-site or remotely.

The installation, maintenance and updates are defined in custom service contracts.

*Minimal system requirements for the Local PC-Based Calculation Engine

Processor: Intel Core i5, 2 GHz or higher compatible, 64-bit architecture - Operating system: Windows 10 - Memory: 8 GB or higher - Hard disk: 2 GB of free disk space (application files only) - Display: WXGA+ (1440 x 900) or higher resolution monitor, True Color (32 bit) - A full HD display (1920 x 1080) or similar and a solid state hard drive (SSD) are highly recommended. 

 

Note:  a more powerful system shall be required should you want to make use of the local computation infrastructure: not only a more powerful processing unit (i7 or better) but especially a minimum of 32 GB of RAM memory and a much larger disk storage for data downloads and temporary file storage (48 GB recommended but depending entirely on usage).
