Computer Science Lunch 2

It`s time for a new talk in the popular Computer Science (CS) Lunch seminar series. The CS-lunch is a seminar series at the Department of Computers Science at the University of Tromsø. Here you will meet students and scientists from the Computer Science Department for a scientific talk and free lunch. There will be a different topic at each lunch, where Ph. D. students at the department will present their accepted conference and journal papers.

This time Ph.D. student Edvard Pedersen will give a talk about:


Integrating Data-Intensive Computing Systems with Biological Data Analysis Frameworks

Biological data analysis is typically implemented using a pipeline that combines many data analysis tools and meta-databases. These pipelines must scale to very large datasets, and therefore often require parallel and distributed computing.

There are many infrastructure systems for data-intensive computing. However, most biological data analysis pipelines do not leverage these systems. An important challenge is therefore to integrate biological data analysis frameworks with data-intensive computing infrastructure systems. In this paper, we describe how we have extended data-intensive computing systems to support unmodified biological data analysis tools. We also describe four approaches for integrating the extended systems with biological data analysis frameworks, and discuss challenges for such integration on production platforms. Our results demonstrate how biological data analysis pipelines can benefit from infrastructure systems for data-intensive computing.
