How to get super-computing facilities for Bioinformatics analyses?

Published

on

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.

For further information, visit the website CDAC-BRAF.

DockingAnalyzer.py: A New Python script to Identify Ligand Binding in Protein Pockets.

DockingAnalyzer.py-A Python script to identify ligand binding in protein pockets.

High-throughput virtual screening (HTVS) is a pivotal technique in drug discovery that screens extensive libraries of compounds to find potential drug candidates. One of the essential tasks in HTVS is to ensure that ligands are binding within the protein’s binding pocket. This task can be particularly challenging when dealing with thousands of docking results. To address this challenge, we present a Python script that automates the analysis of molecular docking results generated by AutoDock Vina [1] using PyMOL [2]. This script calculates the center of mass (COM) for each docked pose, compares it with a reference ligand’s COM, and identifies poses that bind within a specified threshold distance. This process is crucial in mass docking scenarios where confirming ligand binding within the pocket is necessary. (more…)

VS_Analysis: A Python package to perform post-virtual screening analysis

Virtual screening (VS) is a crucial aspect of bioinformatics. As you may already know, there are various tools available for this purpose, including both paid and freely accessible options such as Autodock Vina. Conducting virtual screening with Autodock Vina requires less effort than analyzing its results. However, the analysis process can be challenging due to the large number of output files generated. To address this, we offer a comprehensive Python package designed to automate the analysis of virtual screening results.
