SDSC, Calit2 awarded $1.4 million NSF grant for new bioinformatics tools
Date:10/18/2011

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) at the University of California, San Diego, have been awarded a three-year, $1.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create a Kepler Scientific Workflow System module. Researchers will develop new tools to help manage ever-growing data sets used in next-generation DNA sequencing.

"Next-generation DNA sequencing is now creating such a large amount of sequence data that it is overwhelming current computational tools and resources," said Ilkay Altintas, director of the Scientific Workflow Automation Technologies (SWAT) Lab within SDSC's Cyberinfrastructure Research, Education And Development (CI-RED) group, and Principal Investigator for the project. "New computational techniques and efficient implementation mechanisms for this data-intensive workload are needed to enable rapid analysis of these next-generation sequence data."

The project receiving the NSF award is called Advances in Biological Informatics Development: bioKepler: A Comprehensive Bioinformatics Scientific Workflow Module for Distributed Analysis of Large-Scale Biological Data. Bioinformatics refers to a field of science that combines biology, information technology, computers and statistical techniques to create research-driven solutions such as customized medications and treatments to help prevent disease, three-dimensional models of genomes and proteins, and advanced agricultural technologies.

"The enormous growth in data-intensive research means that as these data sets get larger, moving data over the network becomes more complicated, error-prone and costly to maintain," said Altintas, who also serves as SDSC's deputy coordinator for research.

The bioKepler project is motivated by the following three challenges that remain unsolved:

  • How can large-scale sequencing data be analyze
