Project TitleImplementing HPC Bioinformatics Algorithms
SummaryIn a Fulbright Specialist visit to Università degli Studi "Magna Graecia" di Catanzaro in Italy, Angela Shiflet and George Shiflet started a project with Mario Cannataro and Pietro Guzzi on developing an educational module on one or more high-performance-computing bioinformatics algorithms. Drs. Cannataro and Guzzi have written a book, Data Management of Protein Interaction Networks (Wiley, 2011), and regularly teach bioinformatics and HPC. The Blue Waters intern would help implement the HPC bioinformatics algorithms in C and MPI. The module and programs will be publically available on the web and hopefully will be used at Università degli Studi "Magna Graecia" and other schools.
Job DescriptionThe intern will help us implement the HPC bioinformatics algorithms in C and MPI and will assist us in developing associated materials, such as user manuals and tutorials.
Conditions/QualificationsMust have programming experience, preferably in C with MPI.
