RCC has the gemBS-rs DNA Methylation Sequencing Analysis pipeline available on our HPC systems. The version we have available uses the Singularity container system. This does not require any special considerations on the part of the user however containers are helpful as they are useful for promoting reproducible research.

Using gemBS-rs on HPC Systems

In order to use gemBS-rs, all you need to do is load the gemBS module and then call the program. This can be done either interactively or non-interactively.
