AARHUS, Denmark, Dec. 12 – Today CLC bio announced the participation in the European FP7 project, STATegra, and receives 1.3 million US Dollars out of the total $7.8M project budget. STATegra aims to develop a user-friendly integral analysis platform for different omics data that is capable of providing a more efficient use of genomics technologies. As a first, this project will generate and integrate data obtained in proteomic, metabolomic and epigenomic experiments.
"One of the big challenges today is going past the raw sequence data and getting to grips with the complexity of epigenetic processes - how, when, and why are certain genes switched off or expressed?" states Senior Bioinformatics Scientist at CLC bio, Dr. Michael Lappe, and continues, "By working together with leading experimental researchers and using our in-house competences in world-class software-engineering, we aim to leverage a framework which makes this extremely complex network biology understandable. Ultimately our tools will facilitate the translation of massive amounts of data into useful insights that can be applied in clinical settings."
The STATegra project aims to provide novel methods and solid statistical foundations to the analysis of a number of different cutting-edge experimental datasets. CLC bio will make these new methods available in the context of their user-friendly software packages and enhance them with suitable visualisation tools. The combination of statistical and visual analysis is key in order to provide a supportive discovery environment for biomedical researchers. Within the overall project, also methods for the validation and design of follow-up studies are implemented. Utilizing and validating existing datasets, STATegra is also going to feed its experimental results back into the public domain.
STATegra project partners
The project partners in STATegra are CLC bio (Denmark), Biomax Informatics AG (Germany), Karolinska Institutet (Sweden), Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (UK), Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (Greece), Institut d’Investigació Biomèdica de Bellvitge (Spain), University of Amsterdam (Holland), University of Leiden (Holland), the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (Germany), University of California (USA). The project is coordinated by Dr. Ana Conesa from the Computational Medicine Institute of the Prince Felipe Research Centre (Spain).

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
