The article entitled « Petabase-scale sequence alignment catalyses viral discovery » by PR[AI]RIE chair Rayan Chikhi and a group of other researchers has been published in “Nature” and commented by “Science”. Both magazines are the world’s top academic journals and cover the full range of scientific disciplines. Papers are accepted from authors around the world and competition to publish is very intense!
The article presents a new cloud architecture for very large scale analysis of genomics data. The researchers mined petabytes of data with highly optimized DNA-to-protein alignment and discovered a new family of coronaviruses, as well as 10 times more viral species than previously known.
Congratulation on this success!
