Indiana University is focusing on two major areas:
Funded by the National Institutes of Health
CICC Combines Grid Computing with Chemical Informatics
Large Scale Computing Challenges
Science and Cyberinfrastructure
CICC is an NIH funded project to support chemical informatics needs of High Throughput Cancer Screening Centers. The NIH is creating a data deluge of publicly available data on potential new drugs.
Chemical Informatics is non-traditional area of high performance computing, but many new, challenging problems may be investigated.
OSCAR-mined molecular signatures can be clustered, filtered for toxicity, and docked onto larger proteins. These are classic “pleasingly parallel” tasks. Top-ranking docked molecules can be further examined for drug potential.
Chemical informatics text analysis programs can process 100,000’s of abstracts of online journal
articles to extract chemical signatures of potential drugs.
Big Red (and the TeraGrid) will also enable us to perform time consuming, multi-stepped Quantum Chemistry calculations on all of PubMed. Results go back to public databases that are freely accessible by the scientific community.
