Cedars-Sinai Medical Center HPC

  • You will need HPC access from EIS, which can be requested in the Service Center.
  • You will need to load the nextflow module on the HPC before running any pipelines (module load nextflow). This should automatically load Java as well.
  • Run this with -profile cedars
  • By default this config file does not specify a queue for submission, and things will thus go to all.q. Because of that, the memory and cpu limits have been set accordingly.
  • We highly recommend specifying a location of a cache directory to store singularity images (so you re-use them across runs, and not pull each time), by specifying the location with the $NXF_SINGULARITY_CACHE_DIR bash environment variable in your .bash_profile or .bashrc
