Cutting edge HPC applications for bioinformatics

Canadian-based GPU maker Tycrid Platform Technologies has just announced the launch of the Prometheus Alliance, a collaborative effort aimed at developing cutting edge HPC applications for bioinformatics, with a specific emphasis on next-gen sequencing data and personalized genomics.

Chris Heier, President of Tycrid Platform Technologies, stated in a release that "Alliance is being established to address a specific challenge that continues to impede the progress of scientific discovery – the lack of scalable, purpose-built appliances. I feel this is critical as we can virtually eliminate the need for scientists to become computer scientists. Our goal is to take a fresh, innovative approach to developing HPC solutions that do one thing really well – address specific computational challenges for bioinformatics.”

Life Science and Informatics

What is this?
is this a new industry?
or a old wine in a new bottle?

Well Life Sciences and Informatics can be anything form computational biology, all omes and omics, core bioinformatics to curation and literature mining, database creation, in the area of biology, chemistry , bio-chem space.

There are number of companies in India and bangalore is the forefront as a major bio-cluster with 20 to 30 companies in this sphere.

now how good are these companies doing?
how good are they in terms of the international markets and how profitable is their business?
what do they do?
their clients?

These are some interesting things that could be discussed in this blog page...
