Genomics Research Computing: The Engine that Drives Personalized Medicine Forward
SESSION: Genomics Research Computing: The Engine that Drives Personalized Medicine Forward
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Christine Fronczak
The purpose of this BOF is to organize the members in the HPC community interested in optimizing bioinformatics algorithms and HPC architectures for use in genomics analysis. We will discuss ongoing performance optimization efforts of these applications at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute, Translational Genomics Institute and Dell. The goals of the BOF are to make researchers aware of these open source efforts, request application recommendations and development priorities, and invite them to join in development and testing. The current and future roles of coprocessors, e.g. MIC, GPUs and FPGAs, in HPC ecosystems for genomics will be discussed.
