WQ-MAKER: A Flexible, scalable genome annotation pipeline on Jetstream cloud

Published in CyVerse, 2017

In this webinar, I presented WQ-MAKER, a customized version of MAKER with a Work Queue-based distributed computing framework designed to run MAKER on multiple virtual machines on the Jetstream cloud. We'll show how to run WQ-MAKER on a test dataset starting from setting up a Jetstream account along with some of the accessory scripts (Ansible playbooks and custom scripts) and a few apps developed to manage the computation and progress. Performance numbers for various genomes annotated using WQ-MAKER will be discussed. The tutorial for this webinar is online at and a publication describing WQ-MAKER is here here.
