Automatic knowledge extraction in sequencing analysis with multiagent system and grid computing

J Integr Bioinform. 2012 Jul 24;9(3):206. doi: 10.2390/biecoll-jib-2012-206.


Advances in bioinformatics have contributed towards a significant increase in available information. Information analysis requires the use of distributed computing systems to best engage the process of data analysis. This study proposes a multiagent system that incorporates grid technology to facilitate distributed data analysis by dynamically incorporating the roles associated to each specific case study. The system was applied to genetic sequencing data to extract relevant information about insertions, deletions or polymorphisms.
