Project(s) or EGEE activity presenting the demo or poster (project or activity names only)
The genetic linkage analysis of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) markers has recently become a very popular approach for genetic epidemiology and population studies, aiming to discover the genetic correlation in complex diseases. The high computational cost and memory requirements of the major algorithms proposed in literature make analyses of medium/large data sets very hard on a single CPU. The genotyping technologies have greatly facilitated the study of DNA variations in large size samples, allowing the association of the genetic patterns to different clinical phenotypes. We present a performance analysis of a distributed approach for large genetic SNP and mutation studies on high throughput genotyping data based on EGEE Grid platform.
