The CIPRES Science Gateway at Year 6: Lessons learned and best practices

The CIPRES Science Gateway was created in 2009 to provide the international phylogenetic community with easy access to parallel versions of community codes run on High Performance Computing resources available through the XSEDE project. After six years of operation, job submissions continue to increase each month, and more than 19,000 individual users have been provided with access. Here we describe the lessons learned and best practices acquired over the lifetime of the CIPRES Science Gateway.
