The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is making compute time and storage available on their SGI UV1000 system, Blacklight to do genome assembly for the CAMI challenge. Blacklight consists of three nodes with 8-16 TB of shared memory and up to 2,048 cores per node. If you select this option,
If you select this option, PSC will contact you to determine your software and computing needs and to set up your account on Blacklight.
Note! Since you will get access to all datasets you have to accept the following terms.
Data Confidentiality Agreement
CAMI (Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation) Organizers: Dr. Alice McHardy, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research Dr. Thomas Rattei, University of Vienna Dr. Alexander Sczyrba, University of Bielefeld (data contributors)
the CAMI Challenge participant, i.e. the data recipient
As a consequence of taking part in the CAMI (Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation) challenge (http://cami-challenge.org/), the CAMI Challenge participant, i.e. the data recipient, will gain access to simulated metagenome data sets generated from genome sequences and strain information provided by multiple data contributors. These raw sequence data from the genome sequencing projects are being made available to the CAMI challenge participants by multiple data contributors before their publication in the scientific literature.
Until the CAMI challenge has ended and all data contributors have agreed to the release of their data, the data recipient agrees to the following: (1)The data recipient agrees that the data provided by the data contributor or the respective OTUs and strains that will be sequenced will not be redistributed to any third person or institute. (2) The data recipient is NOT ALLOWED to publish the data, deposit the sequences in any database or use it for other purposes than participating in the CAMI challenge. These restrictions will be lifted after the publication of these data sets by the data contributors and when the CAMI challenge has ended. Then, the data sets of the CAMI Challenge will be made publicly available together with the gold standards for further benchmarking uses.
