About BioHPC

BioHPC homeBioHPC is a suite of computational biology applications adapted to high-performance computing environment with a very easy to use, intuitive, web-based interface. It provides:
  • Web-based, point-and-click access to a variety of bioinformatics applications with the underlying structure of computational platform transparent to the user
  • Enhancement of standard applications through parallelization, transparent to the user
  • Integration and simplified access to geographically dispersed hardware resources
  • Web-based administration of users, jobs, applications, and clusters within the suite
  • Standardized access to and maintenance of bioinformatics databases
  • Next generation data management and distribution – from sequencing facility to users.
  • Next generation sequencing pipelines and applications – with internal data management or optional external data upload
  • Web services access allowing integration with external clients  like Perl scripts, MS Excel or Microsoft Biology Foundation (clients are available)
BioHPC is designed to be operated by the users that are not experienced in HPC, web servers, clusters and such. It can be installed on a small scale cluster in a biological lab, and then provide easy access via web interface for lab members. It can be installed in a large infrastructure system (like in CBSU) and provide a portal for integrating many different, sometimes geographically distant, computational resources.

More information about various BioHPC features is provided on the following pages: using BioHPC, BioHPC next generation sequencing support, BioHPC architecture, BioHPC applications, BioHPC administration, future directions.
