BioHDF - Toward Scalable Bioinformatics Infrastructures

submitted by: mark_welsh

The huge volume of data produced by novel sequencing technologies presents significant challenges around data transmission, storage, bioinformatics analysis, visualization, and archiving. Widespread adoption of Next Generation DNA Sequencing (NGS) will be hindered if bioinformatics software cannot scale to meet these challenges.

The Rapidly Growing Standards Landscape in ‘omics by Susanna Sansone, European Bioinformatics Institute

submitted by: dougramsey
As the size and complexity of scientific datasets and the corresponding information stores grow, reporting standards are playing an increasingly active role. Interopera bility among standards, however, becomes pivotal for the development of software applications. Here we present the key synergistic standards activities in the omics domain and the motivation for, an overview of, the BioInvestigation Index infrastructure at the EBI. The marriage of conventional methods with (meta)genomics,...
