Got a big data problem? The University at Buffalo can help.
Through the Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data Analytics (BIG), UB's supercomputing experts have developed a tool that enables researchers and companies to sift through, query and analyze enormous amounts of digital information.
The technology, called the Genomics Data Warehouse, stores and queries vast quantities of data efficiently - a challenging computational task, says project manager Adrian Levesque, MBA, a senior programmer/analyst with UB's Center for Computational Research.
UB built the tool to accelerate genomics-based research, but the technology can be used to solve big data problems in any field, from drug discovery to materials development and supply chain management.
The warehouse is available for use by UB researchers without a fee, and by industry users with rates dependent on the nature of the project.
