Overview of Biocep, a Federative, Collaborative, User-Centric, Cloud-Ready, and Grid-Enabled Computational Open Platform


  • Karim Chine


Biocep is a general unified solution for integrating and virtualizing the access to R engines/servers and aims to become the federative user-friendly computational e-platform for research, finance, and education. The Biocep virtual workbench enables the plugability for all the elements of a computational environment: the computational resource whether it is a local machine, a cluster, a grid, or a cloud server via a simple URL; the computational components via the import of R packages; and the computational GUIs via the import of plug-ins from repositories or the design of new views with a drag & drop GUI editor. This tutorial introduces the new platform. It is useful to anyone interested in e-computing/e-statistics, collaborative data analysis, cloud/grid computing, and user-friendly HPC. It is also useful to developers of distributed and Web-oriented applications for data analysis.

Date and Time

Sunday, December 7, 1–5 p.m.
