BioinfoGRID: Bioinformatics Simulation and Modeling based on GRID

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. Therefore, in order to face these new challenges successfully, it will be necessary to develop high performance computer based on clustering technologies and high performance distributed platforms like GRID.

The Bioinformatics initiative based on European infrastructure created by the EGEE and BioinfoGRID will be also illustrated.
