Cloud Blast and Cloud Units: How to use resources wisely

This article describes how to run CloudBlast wisely. OmicsBox allows you to perform NCBI Blast searches using a cloud system for high-performance computing. This system runs jobs in parallel and autoscales depending on demand. To control usage we use so-called CloudUnits. These units represent computation time (cpu seconds) on the AWS infrastructure. At the moment only Blast and InterProScan consume
