What Hadoop Can Do for Genomics?

Mikael Huss gives two examples of how Hadoop could be used in the genomics space:

  1. Statistical associations between various kinds of data vectors — clinical, environmental, molecular, microbial… This is more or less a batch-processing problem and thus suited to Hadoop.
  2. Metagenomics: This calls for smart use of proper data structures for indexing and querying, and as much parallelization as possible, very likely in some Hadoopy kind of way.
