Abstract

As part of Bioinformatics Petascale Pioneers Program at Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, this project adapts a number of genome-wide association workflows to a unique Cray supercomputing environment, transforms the performance of these workflows and significantly boosts the research lifecycle. Pairwise and third order gene-gene interaction studies are sped up by hundreds of times through massive parallelization and GPU computing, laying the ground for larger datasets and higher
order analysis in the future.
