Molecular Evolution, Genomic Analysis and FreeBSD

The Bielawski group at Dalhousie University is focused on molecular evolution, phylogenetics and genomics. At the moment, the research is entirely computational, involving model development, simulation, and analysis of real genetic data. Since 2009 we have used FreeBSD almost exclusively for our work.

We use our FreeBSD-based cluster for 1) running computationally demanding models of molecular evolution and genomic analysis and 2) storage of genetic sequence data. In this talk I will introduce you to the type of work we do and describe how FreeBSD meets the challenges.
