Integrated computational genomics resources of the SIB

Objective

The Lausanne-based groups of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics are maintaining a suite of databases, software packages and web servers for analysing different types of genome-related data with regard to a variety of biological questions. The databases and web servers of the Lausanne-based computational genomics resources are generated and powered by the high-performance computing platform Vital-IT, whose purpose is to develop, optimise and host software for life science applications, in particular those incorporating large data sets from genomics projects.

The specific aim of this proposal is to facilitate transnational European access through the following instruments:
(i) a visiting developer programme, aimed at making a large collection of datasets, computational resources and expertise available to life scientists who are developing new software;
(ii) access to the HPC infrastructure for large-scale data analysis projects, including courses for new users, focussing on the acquisition of the necessary technical skills to use the infrastructure.
