UC San Diego partners with Venter Institute to build marine microbial genomics cyberinfrastructure

ies where scientists can collaborate on research from dispersed locations--interacting with colleagues, accessing instrumentation, sharing data and computational resources, and accessing information from remote digital libraries.

Calit2 will also partner with UCSD's San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) to create a next-generation science data server complex, which couples the Calit2 and SDSC middleware, compute, and storage capabilities with the NSF's TeraGrid distributed, high- performance computing facility in a unified Service Oriented Architecture. SDSC's Philip Papadopoulos noted that, "the CAMERA complex will have a thousand processors of dedicated local cluster computing and several hundred terabytes of replicated data storage, backed up by the SDSC and TeraGrid high performance compute and storage complexes." This will enable "scalable computing" resources to be applied to a wide range of computational tools to tackle the computationally intense questions derived from the larger metagenomic data collection.

Calit2 and Venter Institute will also support a series of training sessions and specialized seminars on this emerging discipline, as well as provide space for environmental metagenomics visitors to collaborate with CAMERA specialists. Over the next few years, CAMERA is expected to include other environmental or medical metagenomic datasets, as the novel cyberinfrastructure enables research in other disciplines.

The Moore Foundation grant, in part, contributes to the $1 billion fundraising goal of The Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What's Next.

Background

The goal of the CAMERA project is to create important advances in the knowledge of evolutionary biology and microbial ecology in marine and other natural environments.

"Metagenomics has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of microbial ecology in a large number of environments," said David Kingsbury, Ph.D., chief program officer for science
