Bio Info SIG: Workflows and Grid Computing for the Life Sciences
The Monthly Meeting of the Bio Informatics SIG
Andrew Sherman, CTO, TurboWorx
Workflows and Grid Computing for the Life Sciences
Many of the most important computational problems in the life sciences and medicine are based on step-by-step analysis of huge quantities of data. Such problems are highly amenable to solutions employing automated computational workflows deployed on distributed computing infrastructures and grids. This talk will discuss a scalable system for creating and executing distributed and grid-based workflow solutions suitable for life science R&D and medical informatics.
