Structural protein analysis on Nimbus and IBM clouds

In the framework of the MapReduce ANR project led by KerData (2010-2014), we have focused on the FastA bioinformatics application used for massive protein sequence similarity searching. This is a typical data-intensive application that can leverage the Map-Reduce model for a scalable execution on large-scale distributed platforms. FastA remains an interesting use case that we are considering beyond the end of the MapReduce project, for benchmarking our research results in the the area of optimized MapReduce processing.
