The proposal is aimed at the acquisition and setup of a high-performance platform for computational analyses applied to the field of medicine, with an emphasis on genomics. The availability of various state-of-the-art models of sequencers has resulted in a great volume of raw data. However, data processing capacities have not kept pace with that increase and therefore represent a stumbling block to the computational analysis of the data generated. The groups involved in this proposal have extensive experience with sequencing data, being (and having been) directly involved in various projects in the area of genomics. The data processing power of genomics platforms has also been used in various analyses, including drug design and the modeling of biological systems. The platform requested here will also benefit projects in these areas of knowledge. We expect this platform to have a significant impact on the projects carried out by the groups involved. The proposal also encompasses the organization of two courses on the processing and analysis of genomic data, which will be open to all interested parties within the scientific community. (AU)
