You will need to upload your input FASTA file (DNA only!) and select (optionally)
the genomic file. You will then need to specify the set of width
parameters, the size of the nullset which will be used to calculate
the P-values, program options, and the number of processors you want
the job to run on. A more detailed description of input options is
Calculations will be carried out on the BioHPC compute cluster at CBSU. You will receive e-mail notifications when the job is submitted, when it starts, and when it is finished. Output will be available via links embedded in the notification e-mails. For more information about this program and BioHPC interface in general, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Size of the null set
Your job will use the number of processors specified below. Increasing this number will lead to
shorter execution time, but the job may have to wait longer in queue before it starts. Decreasing the
number of processors may cause the job to run too slow and end prematurely if the time limit of 24 hours is exceeded
(click on the link below for the most current timeout info). As a rule of thumb, you should add
(subtract) one processor for each added (removed) width parameter.
