A new private Cloud HPC system will soon benefit bioinformatics researchers in their work on bacterial pathogens. The Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics (CLIMB) project, a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, the University of Warwick, Cardiff University, and Swansea University, will create a free-to-use, world leading cyber infrastructure specifically designed for microbial bioinformatics research.
In this video from ISC 2015, Mark O’Connor from Allinea demonstrates how the company’s Performance Reports tool enables coders to speed up the Discovar bioinformatics code. “Allinea Performance Reports are the most effective way to characterize and understand the performance of HPC application runs. One single-page HTML report elegantly answers a range of vital questions for any HPC installation.”
In this video from WestGrid in Canada, Dr. Yussanne Ma from the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre describes how high performance computing supports her research group’s work, highlighting a recent project where a bioinformatics pipeline was built for the personalized onco-genomics project (POG) at the BC Cancer Agency.
