Special Issue on

"High-Performance Computing and Big Data in Omics-based Medicine"

Biomed Research International, Hindawi Publishing Group


Manuscript Due to Friday, 7th February 2014


Omics sciences are able to produce, with the modern high-throughput
techniques of analytic chemistry and molecular biology, a huge quantity
of data. Next Generation Sequencing analysis of diseased somatic cells,
genome wide annotations of biomarkers, systems pathology studies,
discovering of novel compounds are examples of the great advantages
that high-performance computing can provide to omics science, providing
a fast translation of biomolecular results into the clinical practice.

This special issue is especially interested in parallel implementations
of systems  and algorithms, use of case descriptions of on-Chip and
distributed platforms for the biomedical community, or successful
experiences of  large-scale analysis and simulations in the field of
high-performance computational biology.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- Biological databases for big data management
- HPC, grid, and cloud computing for omics sciences
- Next generation sequencing data analysis
- Genomics variants analysis and classification
- Knowledge management for genomics and proteomics
- Machine learning for big data analysis
- Parallel algorithms for omics sciences
- Genome wide identification of regulation patterns
- Co-expression and coregulation gene expression analysis
- Systems biology simulations and pathway analysis
- Infrastructures for big data integration in omics sciences
- Novel approaches for biomarkers identification
- Large-scale computations for discovering novel drugs
- Structural biology applications for modeling and simulations
