It is a big trouble to run molecular simulations and docking for large molecules without having any proper supercomputing facilities as they require more memory and time to finish.
Center for Development and Advanced Computing (CDAC) is located in India and famous for its supercomputing facilities. BRAF at CDAC is funded by the Department of Information Technology (MeitY), Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Government of India. It provides computational applications to the Bioinformatics community on demand such as cloud computing. High-Performance Computing (HPC) Bioinformatics Resources & Applications Facility (BRAF) at C-DAC is the technology promoter which provides tools for analysis, data mining, and simulation of biological data.
Recently, High-Performance Computing (HPC) Bioinformatics Resources & Applications Facility (BRAF) at C-DAC has developed a dedicated server to provide a supercomputing facility to the researchers in the field of Bioinformatics. This server allows users to perform the following tasks using various software:
- Molecular modeling
- Molecular docking of large molecules
- Sequence analysis
- Genome alignment
- RNA analysis algorithm
- Repeats finding
- Gene finding
- Microarray data analysis
- ab-initio methods
All registered users can remotely log in to the server and submit their jobs. The remote access is provided to the national and international organizations as well as to the industries on request with terms & conditions applied.
