Computer Hardware Upgrades to Support Longer Reads

Computer hardware upgrades

We will be soon be upgrading our dedicated Illumina server with an new rack and an additional 12TB of storage capacity at a cost of nearly $10,000. A 76x76 PE run will currently almost completely utilize the current 9TB of storage. Thus, in order to accommodate campus needs for even longer PE 106 x 106 runs in the very near future, this upgrade is essential. We anticipate installation of the new storage in January. Along with other computer-related upgrades and operations, our support for just the dedicated Illumina server thus far this fiscal year is approaching $20,000. This is expensive, but necessary in order to offer the longest runs possible in order to keep all of our research cutting-edge.
