A biomedical informatics researcher who tracks dangerous viruses as
they spread around the globe has restructured his innovative tracking
software to promote even wider use of the program around the world.
Associate Professor Daniel Janies, an expert in computational
genomics at the Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University
(OSU), is working with software engineers at the Ohio Supercomputer
Center (OSC) to expand the reach of SUPRAMAP
(supramap.org), a web-based application that synthesizes large, diverse
datasets so that researchers can better understand the spread of
infectious diseases across hosts and geography. By separating SUPRAMAP's
client application from the underlying server software, the goal is to
reconfigure the server in a way that researchers and public safety
officials can develop other front-end applications that draw on the
logic and computing resources of SUPRAMAP.
