Does anyone have experience using Amazons AWS for their bioinformatics work? I have experience using traditional HPC clusters that I can install Anaconda/Mamba on and then conda install any packages I need for my workflows.
The AWS is slightly confusing because while I have installed mamba on my EC2 instance, I am not sure if I will be charged for all the packages I install while not actually running any jobs. For instance would I need to wipe out all my packages after I am finished running my job and then reinstall everything the next time I want to run a job?
Additionally, while I used to use pbs or slurm for submitting my jobs, that does not seem to be an option with the EC2 instances. Is there an alternative to submitting jobs from an EC2 instance so that I can submit a script and then submit a additional jobs without issue?
Any insight or advice would be appreciated
Your posts indicate that you are primarily here to promote your company, which is fine. Rather than posting randomly in threads that are months or years old, you may be better served by creating a new post of the
Tooltype that highlights services offered by your company. If you throw in a discount of some kind, you may even generate a good number of clicks and inquiries. As it were, there are many ChIP-Seq tutorials on the internet, and posts in these old threads are unlikely to be seen by many people.
Thanks for your guidance Mensur, much appreciated
I don't know the rules here but I would say it's an absolute ethical requirement to disclose if you have any kind of stake in a tool or company you are promoting.
