There is an increased amount of data produced by next generation sequencing (NGS) machines which demand scalable storage and analysis of genomic data. In order to cope with this huge amount of information, many biobanks are interested in cloud computing capabilities such as on-demand elasticity of computing power and storage capacity. There are several… (More)
In this paper, we describe the findings of the NEON project - a cross-Nordic - Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland - project evaluating the usefulness of private versus public cloud services for HPC users. Our findings are briefly that private cloud technology is not mature enough yet to provide a transparent user experience. It is expected that… (More)
A numerical scheme is suggested for accurate large-scale quantum dynamics simulations. The time-dependent Schrödinger equation with finite time-dependent interaction terms is replaced by an inhomogeneous equation with imaginary boundary operators applied along the time axis. This equation is solved globally for a finite time interval using recent Krylov… (More)
This is an introduction to the NordiCloud Symposium collocated with WICSA/ECSA 2012.
Virtual Screening is a technique in chemo informatics used for Drug discovery by searching large libraries of molecule structures. Virtual Screening often uses SVM, a supervised machine learning technique used for regression and classification analysis. Virtual screening using SVM not only involves huge datasets, but it is also compute expensive with a… (More)
Privacy-preservation for sensitive data has become a challenging issue in cloud computing. Threat modeling as a part of requirements engineering in secure software development provides a structured approach for identifying attacks and proposing countermeasures against the exploitation of vulnerabilities in a system. This paper describes an extension of… (More)
Automation of model building enables new predictive models to be generated in a faster, easier and more straightforward way once new data is available to predict on. Automation can also reduce the demand for tedious bookkeeping that is generally needed in manual workflows (e.g. intermediate files needed to be passed between steps in a workflow). The… (More)
A numerical procedure is suggested for the solution of multidimensional inhomogeneous Helmholtz/Schrö dinger equations. The procedure is based on coordinate-space (grid) representations in which all the coupling terms (V ˆ) between different degrees of freedom are local (diagonal) and therefore the remaining differential (nonlocal) terms are separable. This… (More)
