Wynton currently supports a number of new pilot projects, however several research groups will soon make wider use of the Wynton computing infrastructure.
Over 100 research labs from QB3 and the UCSF Memory and Aging Center, with projects ranging from computational modeling of biomolecule structures to 3-D reconstruction of brain images, will soon be supported by Wynton — increasing the efficiency of their computational workload and enabling new and more powerful analyses.
Sample projects include:
UCSF Information Commons
A space in which large-scale data sets are assembled, curated, and integrated to allow for discovery of connections amongst the networks involved in health and disease. The Information Commons pilot will focus on datasets and networks involving gene (co-)function, (co-)expression, and (co-)variation, drug targets, protein-protein and chemical-genetic interaction, as well as symptoms extracted from the electronic health record.
Women’s Interagency HIV Study
This study is focused on the health of women living with HIV in the US, maintains over 1M medical records for research.
