Advancing Bioinformatics Using an Integrated MapReduce Framework

Source: IBM
Release Date: May 15, 2012

The integration of new technologies in bioinformatics is essential to accelerating breakthroughs that will improve lives. However, these approaches bring tremendous amounts of data and complex analysis, adding to the challenges in biologically-tailored medicine. This whitepaper examines the deployment of bioinformatics compute models that leverage MapReduce in both public and private clouds. The approach uses the Platform Symphony MapReduce reference architectures to enable greater resource utilization and performance gains within the genomic data science center.
