I work at the EBI where our computing pipelines rely extensively on LSF.
Thus, I've adapted the runCA script and called it runCA_LSF to run it on our computing farm to do some transcriptome assembly and optimize the memory and thread usage.
From my recent test on a 454 assembly (> 2M reads), it works well until the terminator step where I had probably a buffer overflow issue.
So, after recompiling AS_MSG_pmesg.c with a bigger msgMax, I'll see if I can complete the pipeline using LSF.
It would be useful if you could distribute my script with the wgs-assembler. I've adapted also the spec file so it does not mix with SGE commands.
