For several applications and algorithms used in applied bioinformatics, a bottle neck in terms of computational time may arise when scaled up to facilitate analyses of large datasets and databases. Re-codification, algorithm modification or sacrifices in sensitivity and accuracy may be necessary to accommodate for limited computational capacity of single(More)
The potential for Grid technologies in applied bioinformatics is largely unexplored. We have developed a model for solving compu-tationally demanding bioinformatics tasks in distributed Grid environments , designed to ease the usability for scientists unfamiliar with Grid computing. With a script-based implementation that uses a strategy of temporary(More)
Arabidopsis thaliana serves as a model organism for the study of fundamental physiological, cellular, and molecular processes. It has also greatly advanced our understanding of intraspecific genome variation. We present a detailed map of variation in 1,135 high-quality re-sequenced natural inbred lines representing the native Eurasian and North African(More)
The beginning of the twenty-first century has been characterized by an explosion of biological information. The avalanche of data grows daily and arises as a consequence of advances in the fields of molecular biology and genomics and proteomics. The challenge for nowadays biologist lies in the de-codification of this huge and complex data, in order to(More)
Genetic variation is a strong risk factor for many human diseases, including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, depression, autoimmunity and asthma. Most of the disease genes identified so far alter the amino acid sequences of encoded proteins. However, a significant number of genetic variants affecting complex diseases may alter the regulation of(More)
