The project High Performance, Cloud and Symbolic Computing in Big-Data Problems applied to Mathematical Modeling of Comparative Genomics (Mr.SymBioMath) running from February 2013 to January 2017 is being funded by the European Union within the 7th framework programme for research as an Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) project under grant agreement number 324554.
Mr. SymBioMath links different research domains coming up with a coordinated multi-disciplinary approach for the development of tools targeting Big-Data and computationally intensive scientific applications. Generic solutions for Big-Data storage, management, distribution, processing and final analysis will be developed. While these solutions target a broad range of scientific applications, as a concrete proof-of-concept they will be implemented in the Comparative Genomics field of bioinformatics and biomedical domains.
All of these applications are well suited to apply high-performance and cloud computing approaches and present a high potential for commercialisation. Visualization techniques for different output devices ranging from Virtual Reality environments to mobile devices will be developed to enhance the human understanding of the result data sets.
