Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Large-Scale Genomics Experiments Enabled by OSG Connect Resources

Not scheduled



Prof. Stephen Ficklin (Washington State University)Mr William Poehlman (Clemson University)


Several petabytes of raw DNA sequencing data have been deposited into public databases in recent years, introducing novel opportunities for mining useful biological information. The Open Science Grid (OSG) provides hardware and software infrastructure that have enabled us to address complex biological questions at a larger scale than previously possible with our local HPC resources at Clemson. With the help of the OSG support staff, we have developed two functional Pegasus workflows for processing and interpreting large genomic datasets. From software compilation to workflow optimization, we have encountered technical challenges that were quickly eased by the dedicated support of the OSG staff. The successes and challenges that we have encountered throughout this process will be discussed.
