High performance computing for Life Sciences
Progress in computers and algorithms during the last years has made numerical simulation and modelling a key research methodology in both academia and industry, which in turn drives exascale computing in order to maintain excellence in research and innovation.
Brandenburgischer Innovationsgutschein (BIG), NR. 85011377
OakLabs has started a project with the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI to significantly improve the throughput of gene expression profiling studies building the basis for cost-efficient comprehensive analysis of complex biomarker signatures for personalized medicine.
SimPCR - Programm zur Förderung von Forschung, Innovation und Technologien (ProFIT Brandenburg), Nr. 80169648, 80169649, 80169650
The main goal of the project is the initialization of a paradigm shift in how PCRs can be established. Within the scope of the project, we will develop an innovative quantum physics-based PCR simulation. In addition, a unique online platform will be developed within the framework of the project, which will be used to market the PCR simulation.
