What are good bioinformatics servers where user data can be uploaded and then analyzed using pre-existing pipelines or user-defined custom pipelines or both?
I was alerted to Galaxy Server. Is this free to use with my academic undergraduate researcher based in the US? And are there limits? How do I register? Please share any relevant links (I am overwhelmed by galaxy related info online)
One graduate alumnus also pointed out XSEDE allocation that can also be used on iPlant / CyVerse. But he said this is old info and is not sure how easy it would be for me with "minimal ssh setup and experience". An that I would need to submit a proposal etc. Your thoughts?
Some context: I am looking for a resource with high RAM because I need to perform some genome assemblies (>100GB memory) and also genome-genome alignment with something like Cactus (also early > 100GB memory). I do not need > 500GB or 1TB of storage because I can back up input and output locally, with 2-3X redundancy.
I look forward to your advice.
