Tauber Center of BioInformatics is actively participating in various research projects, such as United States Department of Defense, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project titled, "Linking Virus Population Genetic Structure to Infectivity and Adaptation:” collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University (CA); Mount Sinai School of Medicine (NY); Leloir Institute (Argentina); and SAIC Inc. (San Diego, CA)
- Highly parallelized GP-GPU calculation of distances between millions of sequences; distances (similarities) are calculated as correlations of kmer spectra of sequences.
- GP-GPU implementation of the flexible BLAST-like algorithm
- Multi-thread implementation of bi-clustering algorithm: each bi-cluster consists of a group of sequences associated with a group of k-mers
A goal of the developed Bioinformatics Analysis Pipelines, which the Tauber Center has developed is to disseminate acquired knowledge in the “big data” analysis. The service is providing an user-friendly way to analyze NGS and other types of omics data by a variety of already established public domain algorithms and by new algorithms, which we developed.
