BACKGROUND Large comparative genomics studies and tools are becoming increasingly more compute-expensive as the number of available genome sequences continues to rise. The capacity and cost of local computing infrastructures are likely to become prohibitive with the increase, especially as the breadth of questions continues to rise. Alternative computing(More)
In this overview to biomedical computing in the cloud, we discussed two primary ways to use the cloud (a single instance or cluster), provided a detailed example using NGS mapping, and highlighted the associated costs. While many users new to the cloud may assume that entry is as straightforward as uploading an application and selecting an instance type and(More)
A recent study of the replicability of key psychological findings is a major contribution toward understanding the human side of the scientific process. Despite the careful and nuanced analysis reported, the simple narrative disseminated by the mass, social, and scientific media was that in only 36% of the studies were the original results replicated. In(More)
MOTIVATION Prior to applying genomic predictors to clinical samples, the genomic data must be properly normalized to ensure that the test set data are comparable to the data upon which the predictor was trained. The most effective normalization methods depend on data from multiple patients. From a biomedical perspective, this implies that predictions for a(More)
Although a protocol aims to guide treatment management and optimize overall outcomes, the benefits and harms for each individual vary due to heterogeneity. Some protocols integrate clinical and genetic variation to provide treatment recommendation; it is not clear whether such integration is sufficient. If not, treatment outcomes may be sub-optimal for(More)
This paper demonstrates a method to identify keyword strategies to facilitate the search for articles containing decision support and clinical algorithms represented in the text by complex unsearchable items such as decision tree figures, pseudo code, or mathematical formulae. We use a text mining approach to generate 'Surrogate Algorithm Tags' (SRATs),(More)
