Big data in small places — 10 years later

Bioinformatics jobs done and methods used at TSL. Our model increases productivity (A). By collating system statistics on the number of jobs being run concurrently per hour and per day ‘before and ‘after’ a period in which we implemented our new systems for data management, our Galaxy instance and carried out training. We see a general rise in the jobs being run per hour after the changes and the box-plots show a significant increase in the jobs run per day (t-test, p = 0.027). We have many biologists using many bioinformatics approaches (B). A high proportion of our staff are carrying out bioinformatics projects and using a wide range of methods. Each bar represents a method and each colour represents a user (projects using that method are indicated by the size of the block in each bar). Most biologists work on 2–4 informatics projects, applying 2–3 methods. The most widely used methods are resequencing and de-novo assembly that contribute to our genomics projects.
