Project Start Date: Summer 2011
Project Title: Graphical Pipeline Workflow Environment for Visual Informatics and Genomics
Contact: Ivo Dinov (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Project Description: Informatics and genomics research require efficient, flexible and robust management of large heterogeneous data, advanced computational tools, powerful visualization, reliable hardware infrastructure, interoperability of computational resources, and detailed protocol provenance.
This project will extend the Pipeline Environment (http://pipeline.loni.ucla.edu), a client-server distributed computational infrastructure, to enable the visual graphical construction, execution, monitoring, validation and dissemination of advanced informatics and genomics data analysis protocols. Examples of diverse genomics tools and the interoperability of informatics tools include EMBOSS, mrFAST, GWASS, PLINK, MAQ, SAMtools, Bowtie, CNVer, etc.
Required Experience: Java and web-services programming experience and strong motivation to contribute to a large scale research project development
Possibility of Funding: Yes
