Dr. Enis Afgan Has Published a Paper in Nature Biotechnology
Dr. Enis Afgan, a research associate at the Center for Informatics and Computing (CIC), has published a paper entitled “Harnessing cloud computing with Galaxy Cloud” in the journal Nature Biotechnology (IF=31.1). The results facilitate simple access to an environment for performing bioinformatic analyses on a Cloud infrastructure using the Galaxy Web Application.
The Galaxy Web Application facilitates the creation and composition of analyses in the natural sciences and assures accessible, repeatable and transparent computer searches. Galaxy Cloud, developed within the CloudMan project, allows individual researchers using a web browser, without any installations or configurations whatsoever, to access the complete infrastructure necessary for desired analyses, such as, for example, large BLAST searches orde novogenome sequencing.
The paper was written at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where Dr. Enis Afgan was a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Afgan has recently started working at the RBI in the CIC, where he continues development of the CloudMan project and collaborates with the Galaxy team.
