Iplant

From MolEvol

iPlant Collaborative

iPlant is oriented towards plant biologists but anyone can use their computing resource Atmosphere.


Register for iPlant, and then register for Atmosphere compute allocations.

Start an 'instance'. I made an image that has most of the software from the workshop installed! muscle, mafft, paml, migrate-n, lamarc, garli and MrBayes (mb)

Wait until Instance status: running (depending on load this can take a few minutes) −

You can now ssh into that instance using ssh or puTTy

<iPlant username>@<ip address>

So for the instance I showed above, I would use

 ssh mctavish@128.196.142.32

Now I have access to a free computer to run analyses! Use scp or cyberduck to move files back and forth.

Use screen to keep things running Screen tutorial


There is also a script to install the software on any ubuntu machine at https://molevol.mbl.edu/wiki/images/b/b1/Atmosetup.zip
