Geneious Server

Geneious Server is a software package that extends the capability of Geneious Prime to take advantage of your existing enterprise level infrastructure.

Server grade performance for your whole team

Make it easy for biologists to shift computation from the desktop onto HPC resources and enhance your productivity by removing analysis bottlenecks. One click in Geneious Prime and your job runs on the server.

Offload and organize your data

Ensure all of your valuable research data is safe and easily accessible. Results are automatically stored in a central SQL database where researchers can collaborate on it and you can manage data security.

Do BLAST your way

BLAST+ comes built in and its easy to create in-house databases and run searches on them from Geneious Prime, no work required from system administrators.

Infrastructure Requirements

  • Supports PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle databases
  • Recommended hardware is an 8-core 64-bit Linux computer with 24Gb of RAM or higher
  • Minimum hardware is a 4-core 64-bit Linux computer with 8Gb of RAM
  • Requires Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the operating system

Benefits of Geneious Server

  • High-intensity computing tasks are handled by the server
  • Faster analysis of large volumes of sequence data
  • Your institution’s available computing power can be utilized fully
  • Server power can be shared securely amongst teams of researchers
  • Fast workflows make handling large volumes of samples easier

Geneious is an indispensable tool for organizing, analyzing and storing our diagnostics tasks and, together with the Geneious Server package, is a terrific and powerful workbench enabling efficient genomics work – a real boon for any genetics laboratory

Geneious Server runs in two configurations

Execute Host Submit Host
  • Installed on a stand-alone self-contained server.
  • Capable of scheduling jobs and performing computation.
  • Required RAM is proportional to the intensity of the analyses.
  • Connected to a cluster or other HPC facility.
  • Computation is performed externally, thereby minimizing memory requirements.
