SGI High Throughput Computing (HTC) Wrapper Program for Bioinformatics

The SGI High Throughput Computing (HTC) Wrapper Program for Bioinformatics allows customers to maximize throughput and utilization of their SGI systems for running standard bioinformatics applications like BLAST, FASTA, ClustalW and HMMER.

Developed by SGI applications engineers, HTC works with the original application binaries and allows users to obtain the same results far more easily and efficiently than the use of a general purpose batch scheduler. HTC is freely available from SGI and designed to run on SGI® Rackable®, SGI® ICE™ and SGI® UV™ systems.
