Milanesi Luciano EGEE User Forum, Clermont-Ferrand, France February, 2008 BioinfoGRID Project Milanesi Luciano National Research Council Institute of Biomedical Technologies, Milan, Italy
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December Networks of resources The potential of new biological and biomedical technological platforms in connection with HPC and GRID technology will be particularly useful to deal with the increasing amount, complexity, and heterogeneity of biological and biomedical data. Bioinformatics applications for eHealth have become an ideal research area where computer scientists can apply and further develop new intelligent computation methods, in both experimental and theoretical cases.

WP1 – Genomics Applications Integrating W3H, SoapLab and the GRID
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December WP2 – Proteomics Applications Perform functional protein analysis in GRID by using the functional protein domain annotations on large protein families using GRID and related databases. All 518 human protein kinases and 5129 proteins from non-redundant chainset of Protein DataBank were analyzed with InterProScan applications
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December WP2 – Proteomics Applications Protein surface calculation in GRID. : the grid was used to compute the volumetric description of the proteins obtaining a precise representation of the corresponding surface. Then protein interactions could be quickly screened by the mean of surface analysis. –The ProSite domains were analyzed all-against-all –ATP-E against its inhibitor –Collagen against integrin
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December WP3 – Transcriptomics applications Phylogenetics : Reconstructing the evolutionary history of a group of taxa is major research thrust in computational biology and a standard part of exploratory sequence analysis. An evolutionary history not only gives relationships among taxa, but also an important tool for inferring structural, physiological, and biochemical properties of sequences from other similar sequences, and reconstruction of tissue evolution.
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December 2007 WP4 – Databases & Genomics Applications Work Package 4: Databases and Functional Genomics Applications –Testing the main biological databases in the Grid environment optimization on storage space, bandwidth, download time –Testing performances and scalability of database-based applications performances/scalability testing according to various use cases and submission algorithms –1 challenge: Gene Analogous Finder 55+ years of computation on a single CPU, not feasible in a local environment.
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December 2007 GridDBManager –Automatic Updater Timer based monitoring and update of Grid ported databases –Adaptive replica manager Constantly adapts the number of replicas in relation to the usage of each database in the last 10 days –Version Regression Keeps patches on the Grid for allowing regression of each database to an earlier version WP4 – Databases handling
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December WP4 – Methods - GridDBManager
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December Testing performances and scalability of Database-Oriented Bioinformatics Applications (DBApp) in the EGEE GRID –Testing Performance and Scalability Grid: too many variables (queue time, database download time, queue failures, execution failures) Submission mode: too many variables (number of jobs, rate-limiting settings, resubmission algorithm) Application too many variables: (performance of specific application, location of database) Probing of Grid performances Numeric simulation for all algorithms WP4 – Methods - DBApp Perf. Testing
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December Probing Grid performances (Example) –Grid queue times and reliability Sent 150 jobs in 3 groups of 50 at different times WP4 – Methods - DBApp Perf. Testing
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December WP5 – Molecular docking The neuraminidase viruses is considered a valid target for antiviral drugs
Milanesi Luciano BioinfoGRID Symposium, Milan December Docking: predict how small molecules bind to a receptor of known 3D structure WP5 – Molecular docking There are successful examples –rapid, –cost effective… But there are limitations –CPU and storage needed More specific talk by Ana Lucia Da Costa Wednesday 13 th 11:15 – Room: Bordeaux
