Abstract: This poster presents an example of data-driven workflows running on a SLURM+ALPS scheduled Cray machine at Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. This example adapts the de novo assembly software WGS-Celera, which originally has no SLURM support, to be able to dynamically request resources and distribute work through the hybrid scheduling system on Magnus, a Cray XC40 at Pawsey. The changes made to the code are uploaded to GitHub, and some insights about the adaptation are offered in this poster to benefit other users of Celera or other similarly-structured workflows around the world.
