Scalable Genome Assembly at the MTAGS Workshop held at Supercomputing 2009.
Their (unnamed) scalable assembler allows the end user to plug in a variety of custom algorithms for the computationally intensive phase of sequence alignment, using the Work Queue software to manage a workforce of hundreds of computers harnessed via Condor.
Our largest run so far used over 1000 nodes at three different institutions, reducing the time to perform alignments from over nine days to less than one hour.
