Portable Bioinformatics Tools Using Beagle Bone
Need of high end servers for handling huge data and their maintenance is extremely a bottleneck and Portability of data for analysis is mandatory due to highly inter displinary in nature of bioinformatics. It is better to develop a Cost effective computational portable system by combining the bioinformatics tools with advanced hardware. Through this we can make strong bond between advanced electronic devices and Bioinformatics tools as well as synchronization between the growth of bioinformatics and Electronics devices.
For this we are using Beagle Bone board. It is a board with the hardware specification of 1Ghz Processor, 512 MB of RAM, inbuilt 3D accelerator and Ubuntu OS installed on it.Bioinformatics tools are used for performing various tasks such as storing, retrieving, organizing biological data. In this project we will be integrating bioinformatics tools into beagle bone chip so that we can get the advantage of lesser hardware cost, computational speed, and abundant open source technologies with minimized major bottleneck in bioinformatics tools for performing huge data analysis. As a test case we blasted 2 sequences using BLASTALL tool and got an expected output from it. Further we are going to deploy high throughput tools by expanding processor and memory with mobile bioinformatics tools with touch screen interface.
