  • 14. Themes 1. The Landscape 2. HPC Midlands 3. What’s in Scope? 4. Next Steps
  • 15. What’s in Scope? – Bias towards industrially linked R&D work – Majority of use to date has been science and engineering – Interest from biotech sector – Links to big pharma and startups/spinouts
  • 16. Themes 1. The Landscape 2. HPC Midlands 3. What’s in Scope? 4. Next Steps
  • 17. Next Steps
  • 18. Next Steps – Use cases • “Conventional” MPI codes and off-the-shelf parallel apps • High Throughput Computing / embarassingly parallel codes – Bioinformatics applications • BLAST/CS-BLAST/CSIBLAST, Bowtie, Cufflinks, FAST A, GATK, … • HPC plugin for i2b2?
  • 19. Next Steps
  • 20. Next Steps – Collaborators sought! – Local or remote i2b2 database? • NHS infosec requirements • Redaction/anonymization/consent – Combining sources, e.g. Mosaic • Machine Learning • Big Innovation Centre: “Data Switzerland” etc – New or existing project?
