Distributed R computations for statistical metagenomic analysis
ProActive Solution provides Parallel R environment for genomic profiling and statistical analysis over a hybrid multi-platform architecture.
Flexible and powerful computing infrastructure as well as software are needed to analyze big datasets efficiently (from 40GB to 500TB). The effective use of HPC technologies based on new promising architectures that have emerged recently is the solution to this challenge. Metagenopolis and Activeeon have implemented solutions based on Map/Reduce and jobs submissions with PARConnector package (ProActive R connector).
