Indiana Univ. to use cloud computing in life science research

|

From today's Fiercebiotech News, FierceBiotech IT [editors@fiercebiotechit.com]

By George Miller

"... Indiana University is spending $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health on...high-end computing discovery tools. The Hoosiers' Pervasive Technology Institute Digital Science Center is targeting cloud computing to support life science research.
In addition to busting computing bottlenecks, the center plans to use the cloud for analyzing sequencing data, the volume of which is "one to two orders of magnitude larger than possible with current computational capabilities," according to an industry article. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and other open source software are expected to be part of the installation.
The center's research team will partner with IU life science research teams to test the platform in such research areas as sequence assembly and population genomics. Cloud technologies will also be applied to gene family clustering and structural visualization.
The IU work is also supported by the National Science Foundation via its FutureGrid experimental supercomputing network project."

OpenHelix -- resources portal for genomics research

|

OpenHelix Resource Newsletter today proclaims the launch of an open access search and learn portal: openhelix.com web site to help researchers find the most relevant of the thousands of databases and analysis tools.

From their "About' page:

OpenHelix allows "More efficient use of the most relevant resources means quicker and more effective research. OpenHelix empowers researchers by
  • providing a search portal to find the most relevant genomics resource and training on those resources.
  • distributing extensive and effective tutorials and training materials on the most powerful and popular genomics resourcs.
  • contracting with resource providers to provide comprehensive, long-term training and outreach programs."

There is a blog.  There is a newsletter to which one is free to subscribe.

BioData Mining -- New Open Access Journal by BioMed Central

|

"Open access publisher BioMed Central, US, has announced the launch of a new open access journal - BioData Mining. Dr Jesus Aguilar-Ruiz of the Pablo De Olavide University and Dr Jason H. Moore of the Dartmouth Medical School will serve as Editors-in-Chief of the journal. They will be supported by an expert Editorial Board.

BioData Mining publishes original articles on all aspects of data mining applied to high-dimensional biological and biomedical data, focusing on computational aspects of knowledge discovery from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data. As well as being open access, the journal also operates an open peer review process, which the editors hope will foster constructive reviews and therefore enrich the criticism.

All BioData Mining articles are archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature, and also in repositories at the University of Potsdam in Germany, at INIST in France and in e-Depot, the National Library of the Netherlands' digital archive of all electronic publications. The journal is also participating in the British Library's e-journals pilot project, and plans to deposit copies of all articles with the British Library."
