Bioinformatics applications currently require both processing of huge amounts of data and heavy computation. Fulfilling these requirements calls for simple ways to implement parallel computing. MapReduce is a general-purpose parallelization model that seems particularly well-suited to this task and for which an open source implementation (Hadoop) is available. Here we report on its application to three relevant algorithms: BLAST, GSEA and GRAMMAR. The first is characterized by relatively low… CONTINUE READING
