The aim of this program of work is to assist in the design, architecture and aspects of the delivery of infrastructure to support EMBL-ABR activities and ensure interoperability across the EMBL-ABR network as well as with international efforts. In addition, this program will identify pathways that respond to the future computation, analysis and storage infrastructure requirements.
The high-end computing facility support for life sciences are provided by Melbourne Bioinformatics and QCIF and there are projects underway to increase the access to computational resources through Nectar and other node computation solutions. Data storage relationships at each node and with RDS are progressing. These activities are being undertaken in the context of the need to operate at a national scale to support involvement in large scale programs such as the 10000 Genomes project.
