e-BioGrid: enabling Life Science Research and Technology
Life sciences today deals with data-intensive and high-throughput experimentation. e-BioGrid supports life-science research through the development and exploitation of a computing infrastructure. High-performance computing hardware as well as infrastructure software is build and made available to enable more effective research in technology areas such as next-generation sequencing, microarray technology, mass spectrometry, nanoscopy and biobanking.
Examples include the availibility of grid computing for computational intensive DNA sequence alignments, and building a pipeline for metagenomics analyses. Review the projects pages to find out what e-BioGrid is working on or what has been developed.
