Informatics infrastructure


The goal of the subproject is the development of an e-Infrastructure and tools for the collection, management and analysis of bioinformatics data. The tools will support the (a) scaling of the number of diagnostic analyses that can be provided for medical applications regarding the research in the field of precision medicine and (b) the provision of services for the analysis of large-scale experiments; the results of these analyses will be used for the creation of computational models, that provide personalized predictions in regard to the diagnosis and response of patients to different treatments.

Main activities

The e-Infrastructure will offer services for the management, synchronization, formatting and enrichment of the bioinformatics data that will be produced by the four Precision Medicine Units (PMUs) and will support two basic types of Precision Medicine (PM) workflows: diagnostic workflows and knowledge-discovery workflows.
