In this post-genomics era, the rapid development of high-throughput sequencing technologies has lead to an explosive accumulation of biological information. Further, emerging next-generation sequencing technology, which is a key tool in the medical applications of personal genomics, has generated unprecedented volumes of DNA sequence data. Because the cost of DNA sequencing continues to decrease, the increasing rate of data acquisition is outstripping data storage capacity and the development of appropriate computing resources. The cloud computing environment can be considered an alternative computing architecture that provides fast, large-scale, and cost-effective bioinformatics analysis.
