On-demand, scalable compute clusters for tandem mass spectrometry searches
Proteome Cluster is a web-based, high-performance computing solution for searching tandem mass spectrometry data. Searches are conducted on message passing interface (MPI) Beowulf compute clusters hosted on Amazon Web Services.
Proteome Cluster is featured in an AWS Case Study here.
Search outputs for X! algorithms may be viewed on our hosted GPM server or downloaded. OMSSA outputs may be downloaded for viewing with OMSSA Browser.
Proteome Cluster is NOT a shared grid. Every search uses its own dedicated, transient cluster.
Proteome Cluster allows users to save search parameters so that these do not need to be re-entered repeatedly. Search parameters may be downloaded as XML files and shared. If parameters are changed the old parameter settings are saved and maintained for reference.
