I am trying to set up a computing server in our laboratory, and need your suggestions in setting up the optimized platform.
Requirements/Intended uses of the server: RNA-Sequencing analysis (Mapping, alignment and the downstream analysis), Bio-Linux, Cytoscape, Local installation of Galaxy, Storage of RNA-Seq data.
We usually work on Macs, and I have a high-end PC running Ubuntu Linux that I intend to make into a server.
I request your inputs on:
- Is it possible to write scripts on the mac, and run them on the server batch-wise or individually? If so, how (any links would be welcome)?
- What could be the best server to access from a Mac- would Ubuntu server work fine, or do I need Mac server or Windows server? (They are in the same network)
