A-Brain: Using the Cloud to Understand the Impact of Genetic Variability on the Brain

Abstract

Joint genetic and neuroimaging data analysis on large cohorts of subjects is a new approach used to assess and understand the variability that exists between individuals. This approach, which to date is poorly understood, has the potential to open pioneering directions in biology and medicine. As both neuroimaging- and genetic-domain observations include a huge number of variables (of the order of 106), performing statistically rigorous analyses on such Big Data represents a computational challenge that cannot be addressed with conventional computational techniques. In the A-Brain project, researchers from INRIA and Microsoft Research explore cloud computing techniques to address the above computational challenge.
