AEEC Awarded FDA Bio-Metrics Prime Contract

AEEC has been awarded a prime contract with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to provide support for genomics Big Data applications based on the open source HIVE platform. The High-performance Integrated Virtual Environment (HIVE) is a distributed storage and compute environment designed primarily to handle next-generation sequencing (NGS) data that was developed in part by FDA and will become open-source. The scope of work also includes developing bioinformatics analysis algorithms, designing and developing the architecture for scientific information systems, designing a web portal interface and scientific visualization tools, designing and developing HIVE / Honeycomb based information systems, and supporting scientific research.
