  • What Operating System Do You Use For Analysis?

    I'm interested to know what operating systems people here use. This will help me and others decided what platforms to focus testing on.

    I'd also be interested to know what distro the Linux users use. This may help as well. Perhaps maintainers or others could also add why they use this particular distro?

    I run my analysis on an Ubuntu server, Jaunty. I just use the available server, so I can't say anything useful about why it runs Jaunty.

      The workstation I use currently runs Slackware64.-13.0, but it will be upgraded to 13.1 sometime soon. I chose Slackware due to my own familiarity with it, plus support is readily available. I've had people in the Slackware community help me get things working, even if they didn't know much of the tools themselves.

        Wow, I'm surprised there are so many Macs... good thing the new SpliceMap supports OS X. I'll make a post about that later.

            I think most of the people that uses mac, they use them for the initial coding and prototyping, idea testing and then they through the real deal to a HPC cluster, typically linux based.

              Or work on smaller organisms like viruses or bacteria where you don't need so much RAM.

                  Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
                  by seqadmin


                  Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

                  Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
                  by seqadmin


                  Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
