Introduction

    The Korean Bioinformation Center (KOBIC) provides the Bio-Express large-scale Genomic Data Analysis Cloud service for those researchers who need large-scale analysis servers or analysis technology.
    The Bio-Express is comprised of
  • A big data platform for efficient storage, management and utilization of large-scale bio data,
  • CLOSHA Integrated Automatic Analysis System with user-friendly interface and analysis environment,
  • GBox High-speed Transmission System that transmits a large amount of data at a fast rate.
  • The big data platform built on the in-house technologies and the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) enables users to use both popular analysis programs and the Hadoop-based big data analysis program simultaneously. We also provide a variety of public data, including 1,000 pieces of genomes data and TCGA data to keep researchers updated with the latest public genome data.
