Use Cloud Computing environment to develop and test bioinformatics applications
To use cloud computing environment to process large-scale genomic and metagenomic data. Also to use cloud computing environment to develop bioinformatics pipeline and workflow, and test existing bioinformatics software on cloud.
Use of FutureSystems
Create VM, take image of the VM and develop bioinformatics pipelines using MapReduce and Hadoop framework. Analyze existing bioinformatics software on cloud.
Scale of Use
Initially the use will be minimal i.e. a few VMs and 10s GB of data storage provisioning and access couple of times a week.
