BioLib can optionally be configured to delegate compute jobs to a local compute resource, such as the user’s laptop or
an on-premise server. This can in some cases provide better performance and help comply with data security requirements.
To configure BioLib to use a custom compute resource, go to biolib.com/settings/compute/ and
enter the compute node you wish to delegate compute jobs to. For instance, if you wish to use a compute node on your
local computer, use http://localhost:5000.
Installing a Compute Node
To setup a compute node on your laptop and a server, install the pybiolib package:
pip3 install pybiolib
To start the compute node, simply run:
The compute node should now be running on http://localhost:5000. You can configure host and port using the --host
and --port arguments.
