Could anyone suggest an reasonable hardware setting up for
bioinformatics work? The hardware configuration should be able to
handle data generated by high-throughput experiments and large genomic
data. For example, computer with dual CPU and high capacity RAM, RAID
etc? What is the exact configuration including the model and vendor? Is
it possible to cluster few low performance computers for distributed
computing to lower the cost? Where can I get some practical
instructions or tutorials for setting up such bioinformatics lab
equipments?

Thank you for your help!
