QIIME on Starcluster – configure start_parallel_jobs_sc.py script

Some of my jobs weren’t finishing via iPython notebook run on StarCluster.  After looking through the QIIME documentation, I realized I needed to change the main qiime_config file – Apparently Starcluster uses a different method to distribute jobs in paralell, requiring a change to the script filepath.

QIIME config file needs to look like this (pointing to start_parallel_jobs_sc.pysee bottom of QIIME AWS tutorial page here):

cluster_jobs_fp /home/ubuntu/qiime_software/qiime-1.7.0-release/bin/start_parallel_jobs_sc.py
