Merrison Lecture Theatre, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, Warrington, WA4 4AD
Registration is FREE for this event
A major theme of biology today is the quantity and wealth of data available: the data deluge. Computational biologists need to handle very large datasets, and to extract useful information and derive knowledge. Example applications include sequencing, metagenomics, proteomics, imaging and neuroscience.
Traditional high performance computing is not appropriate in situations where calculations are data-bound rather than CPU-bound. Data storage and management are crucial. Specific calculations depend on accessible memory and efficient i/o. Transmitting large datasets across a network may be problematic.
The workshop will look at the computational challenges in data-driven biology. It will bring together hardware experts and scientists involved in challenging data-driven disciplines. Areas covered include:
1. Scientific challenges
3. Computational platforms
4. Data standards
5. Scalability of current applications
