The Data Application Team of the Big Data Center
The China National GeneBank (CNGB) serves as a platform to achieve high performance computing, full data retrieval, automated data management and analysis through the API to open data storage at several levels of granularity, which involves the data layer (data warehouse, data mart, database cluster, index cluster and computing cluster) and application layer (search engine, data analysis, data visualization, authorization management, data submission and download services) to support PB-level biological data sharing. At present, a series of multi-domain and multi-application oriented biological databases have been constructed. In addition, a data archiving system (CNSA, CNGB Nucleotide Sequence Archive) has been released to provide scientific data storage and sharing. On the basis of these, a unified platform (CGA, CNGB Global Archive) for biological data sharing and data application will be constructed. The data archiving system will be improved for better data archiving and submission service. It will establish automated data archiving and data authorization management workflows, provide full data retrieval and download service, covering some data such as gene, mutations, expression, protein, and phenotype. Based on underlying biological data warehouse, cloud computing technology and high-performance automated analysis services, it will provide intelligent computing service for biological data, and simultaneously implement automated data management, efficient data authorization management.
