I am a research assistant at Covenant University Bioinformatics Research Group (CUBRe), Nigeria. My background is computer science and my research interest is in computational biology and bioinformatics. I am a member of the International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB), African Society of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ASBCB) and an active volunteer in ISCB RSG. I am passionate about building bioinformatics capacity and skills in Africa and to this cause, I am a graduate fellow under H3AbioNet.
A framework for Large NGS data analysis: Metagenomics (HPC416S)
Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) provides a lot of platforms to sequence DNA and samples at a cheaper and faster rate. Genomic research is benefiting from this, thus making various analysis and interpretations possible. Despite the benefits of NGS, large data handling is a challenge in the area of whole genome/exome sequencing. The analysis of this large data is complex and requires high performance computing (HPC) to remote users. Here, were describe a framework that uses HPC to address large NGS data processing, incomplete data (no sample metadata information) and reduce the task complexity. We use technologies from Sci-GaIA Open Science Platform to make this analysis available for remote users. This framework proposes to ease research in metagenomics and microbial diversity analysis.
