Grid Based Virtual Bioinformatics Laboratory

  title={Grid Based Virtual Bioinformatics Laboratory},
  author={Paul Donachy and Terence J. Harmer and Ronald H. Perrott and J. Johnston and Alan Mcbride and Michael Townsley and Shane McKee},
Abstract Biotechnologies such as genomics, gene sequencing and high-throughput screening are creating massive volumes and multiple sources of biological and chemical data. However, the volumes of data and the processing power required to analyse it, is threatening to create a bottleneck that might hamper the growth of biotechnology itself. To date, the HPC resources required to store, manage and analyse such volumes of data has been only at the disposal of large companies and research… Expand
