Unfortunately, I am not an IGV user. Most use it on their workstations. I believe it is available on windows and Mac OSX and there is a version that embeds into web pages. There is an Rstidio and Jupiter notebook plugin that allows U to run it by calling methods bit that is not the use case our users are after.
Larger files. The issue is that we prevent upload and download of large files, so those (many) who work from home can grab an RDP desktop and use it on remote workstations. Using it remotely gives them access to all the files on the file server in a speedy fashion, but they are limited to two concurrent remote RDP (windows) connections per workstation which I am told is not enough to meet demand.
I will take a look at how OOD RStudio is configured and connects the interface to the OOD portal. Maybe I can figure out a solution.
IGV tool is heavily used in the bioinformatics, research and Molpath clinical space. I think it could be a welcome inclusion to the OOD inventory.
I suspect Melbourne University have IGV running via their implementation of OOD to their Spartan cluster, so as you mentioned, it is likely this could be made to work.
Have a great and safe Easter break Alan.
