  • KEY CHALLENGE:

  • integrate genomic and clinical data to advance biomedical R&D

  • BOTTOM LINE:

  • We want to advance biomedicine NOT computing per se!


Slide9 l.jpg

BioInformatics Institute

Opening New Frontiers in Biology

  • Demands in High Performance Computing:-

  • Tera-scale CPU requirements

  • Peta-scale data storage & management

  • Tera-scale data networking

  • Security

  • Bioinformatics Expertise!

  • National Tissue Repository :

  • reliable databases and strong data confidentiality.

  • National Disease Registary :

  • Set up by MOH in collaboration with healthcare institutions and research institutes in Singapore.

  • Database on cardiac, diabetes, myopia, cancer, renal etc. disease for healthcare planningand a platform for epidemiological studies of prevalent diseases in this region,

  • When fully operational, will integrate all registries creating new opportunities for scientific and clinical R&D.

  • BioMed Grid Test Beds:

  • Goal :To gain expertise and train manpower to meet future needs for biomedical R&D.

  • Linux Clusters in BII, NUS

  • Part of the new Consortium Called Gelato to push open source development on Linux clusters on the Grid environment.

  • (Gelato involves UIUC, Waterloo, BII, HP Labs, Tsing Hua, NSW…)

  • These nodes will serve as initial test beds for the BioMed Grid Project
