'DNA Assembly' Portlet

Changing the DNA Assembly application configuration

The changes of the DNA Assembly application setting can be done either on the 'Job main menu' screen (in case that no data format converters needed by the job) or on the 'DNA Assembly' subtask form (in case that at least one data format converter is used by the job). Whichever option applies to your job the screen will look quite similar to the one presented on this picutre below. The only differences will come in the top two sections of the screen. They, however, have no impact on the process of configuration changing.

'Job' section
The 'Job' section contains either general information about the job or about the main task of the job. Depending on whether the DNA Assembly application is used in the main task or in the subtask you will find the 'Job description', job submitter's distinguished name (DN: it allows the system to uniquely identify the user), the exact job creation, submission and finish times or the 'Job name', 'Main task name' and 'Main task description' here.

'Main task' or 'Subtask' section
The 'Main task' section, displayed in case the DNA Assembly application is used in the main task, contains the task description that you can edit, if still possible, by clicking on 'Edit task description' in the menu section, the task type (which in this case is 'single') and a number of processes the task is utilizing during the execution (this is by default set to 1). The 'Subtask' section, which is displayed in case a data format converter is used by your job and thus the DNA Assembly application is executed as one of the job's tasks, contains exectly the same information.

'Task application arguments' section
This is the place where arguments for the DNA Assembly application are listed and where you can change (if the job has not been submitted yet) or view these settings. These values would or were used to run your DNA Assembly job. Depending on what algorithm you chose to use for you job the list of the arguments may vary. Change the settings by entering new values into the textfields or checking/unchecking the checkboxes.

'Task application standard inputs/outputs' section
This section contains a list of standard inputs and outputs used by the application during runtime. The DNA Assembly application uses all three inputs/outputs:

'Task application resources' section
This section allows you to set or view some resources requirements for the task. In the case of the DNA Assembly application the only resource that can be requested is the host on which the task is to be executed on. To change the host setting click the 'change resource' button; a new screen will appear.
