In discussions with my labmates we thought it would be really useful if a future version of Qiime could include the ability to automatically email a particular person or group of people. We thought this would be useful for when users have computing resources in a different location from where their lab is located. Some tasks that come to mind include when dada2 or taxonomic classification are complete. Just food for thought!
Emailing a User Upon Completion of Long Tasks such as DADA2 Denoising or Machine Learning Classification
Check with your system admin — SGE and other HPC systems often have mechanisms to email users when jobs are completed.
For SGE, in your job script header line add a line like this:
#$ -M email_address
Other HPC software systems have similar features…
I hope that helps!
Thanks @Nicholas_Bokulich! I’ll look into that.
