The Cell can be run from a command line or through a web interface using all the standard parameters of HMMER, BLAST, and Clustal W. The Cell is however also fully integrated with the most comprehensive bioinformatics desktop software applications on the market: CLC DNA Workbench
, CLC RNA Workbench
, CLC Protein Workbench
, and CLC Main Workbench
The Cell thus benefits from all the features of CLC bio's workbenches such as the graphical user interface, the option of running multiple analyses in batch runs, the data storage opportunities, the graphical and tabular overview of the results, etc.
Using high performance computing has never been easier or more effective.
The Cell's innovative design provides flexibility in a number of ways:
- Physical location: No need for a cooled server room or new expensive hardware to perform high performance computing. All you need is your computer.
- Operating system: As long as your computer has an Intel or AMD processor, the Cell works on both Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems.
- Software use: The Cell can be used as an integrated part of all CLC bio workbenches, through a command line interface, or through a web interface
- Customization: With CLC Developer Kit, you can create your own workflows including the functionalities of the Cell
