Portal Limitations

  • The CIPRES Science Gateway does not support robust parsing of uploaded data sets at present (though such support is planned). Instead the portal relies on the user supplying data in the native formats required by individual packages.
  • Though the codes are fast, TeraGrid runs are restricted to 2 (Lonestar) or 7 (Abe) days. If you think your job may run too long, please contact Mark Miller for assistance.
  • The computational resources available through the gateway are awarded competitively by the TeraGrid Resource Allocaton Committee. These resources are substantial, but remain finite, so usage is monitored and usage by individual accounts constrained by a fair use policy.
