Advances in experimental techniques have transformed
biology into a data-intensive science, with a rapid explosion
of data at the genomic and proteomic level. Few comprehensive
suites of computationally-intensive life science applications
are available to the computer science community
for optimization of current high-performance architectures
specifically targeted towards the computational biology applications.
BioSplash represents a wide variety of open-source
codes spanning the heterogeneity of algorithms, biological
problems, popularity among biologists, and memory
traits, gearing the suite to be of importance to both biologists
and computer scientists.
