Hadoop MapReduce-based approaches have become increasingly popular due to their scalability in processing large sequencing data sets. However, as these methods typically require in-depth expertise in Hadoop and Java, they are still out of reach of many bioinformaticians. In order to solve this problem, we have created SeqPig, a library and a collection of tools to manipulate, analyze and query sequencing data sets in a scalable and simple manner. SeqPig scripts use the Hadoop-based distributed scripting engine Apache Pig, which automatically parallelizes and distributes data processing tasks. We demonstrate SeqPig’s scalability over many computing nodes and illustrate its use with example scripts.Availability and Implementation: Available under the open source MIT license at http://sourceforge.net/projects/seqpig/ CONTACT: email@example.com SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Instructions and examples for SeqPig.
This letter describes a simple way of using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC to help select and auto-extract data from Portable Document Format (PDFs) of randomised trials in order to assist swift early selection of trials for a systematic review.
The selection of models of nucleotide substitution is one of the major steps of modern phylogenetic analysis. Different tools exist to accomplish this task, among which jModelTest 2 (jMT2) is one of the most popular. Still, in order to deal with large DNA alignments with hundreds or thousands of loci, users of jMT2 need to have access to High Performance Computing clusters, including installation and configuration capabilities, conditions not always met. Here we present jmodeltest.org, a novel web server for the transparent execution of jMT2 across different platforms and for a wide range of users. Its main benefit is straightforward execution, avoiding any configuration/execution issues, and reducing significantly in most cases the time required to complete the analysis.Availability and implementation: jmodeltest.org is accessible using modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari and IE from http://jmodeltest.org. User registration is not mandatory, but users wanting to have additional functionalities, like access to previous analyses, have the possibility of opening a user account.
