National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) Platform for Genomics and Drug Discovery: Development of a fast, flexible, high performance computing framework to accelerate NGS omics-data analysis 

Massively Parallel Sequencing or Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has taken the scientific community by storm. After commercial availability of the technology from last decade onwards, even modest sized laboratories and institutions all over the world can effectively produce petabytes of data in weeks. Earlier the most robust Sanger sequencing technology can only generate 0.003 Gb of sequence data in a month whereas the present day an average next generation sequencers can generate 50000 Gb per month. This revolution in data generation technology, warrants an array of statistical and computational advancement to translate information into knowledge. The stumbling blocks in translating the large volume of data (information) to biologically relevant inferences (knowledge) range from (a) information storage, retrieval of the raw data as-is generated from the sequencing machine - (b) large-scale fast computation and processing that is essential for the data to be useable by the general scientific community – (c) sophisticated analysis that is required in transforming the enormous information to knowledge. Of the above, currently, (a) and (b) almost entirely falls in the domain of computational experts and basic scientists without appropriate competence in computational skills, fail to engage. Moreover, a full appreciation of (a), (b) and (c), particularly (b) and (c), require access to highly powerful computer architecture; which is even beyond the capability of a modest institute, let alone an individual. 

The objective of this project is to make available an easy and extremely flexible supercomputing analysis framework, preferably web-based, to the basic scientist. This would enable them to exercise their choice of programs sequentially in a seamless fashion to process the raw sequence data in accordance to their need and choice (i.e. (b)). It will also provide the research a wide array of tools for sophisticated data-analysis (i.e. (c)). The project also would keep in record, the usage of the programs and would analyze the data to optimize and synchronize among different programs and modules.
