ClusterControl 2.0 – Monitor Bioinformatics Applications on Linux Cluster Systems

ClusterControl 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

ClusterControl is a web-interface to simplify distributing and monitoring bioinformatics applications on Linux cluster systems. This software is based on a modular concept that enables integration of command-line oriented programs into the application framework of ClusterControl. The system enables integration of different applications accessed through one interface and executed on a distributed cluster system. The use of wide spread and freely available technologies like Apache as web-server, PHP as server-side scripting-language and OpenPBS or Sun Grid Engine (SGE) as queuing system enables straightforward installation on common operating systems.

FCSM – Frozen Cell Stock Monitor

FCSM

:: DESCRIPTION

FCSM (Frozen Cell Stock Monitor) is a virtual nitrogen tank to monitor frozen cell stocks.

FCSM aimed at facilitating the monitoring of biological samples (cell lines, sera, etc) stored in liquid nitrogen containers. It consists of a virtual container in which scientists can “store” their samples and a program recording the location of each sample, cell characteristics, storage dates, names of the manipulators, and much more. Additional comments and a photograph can be associated with each vial, allowing for reliable tracking of samples. Vials can then be identified according to any parameter of interest to the scientist including associated comments. Once identified, the location of these vials is visually presented, simplifying their localization in the real container during retrieval. Thawing of vials is recorded by the program, together with the date and the name of the manipulator.
