University of Illinois to use grant for new data analysis center

Posted:
URBANA - On Monday, the University of Illinois announced a partnership with the Mayo Clinic to create a new research center focused on health care and data analysis.

The project is made possible by a $9.3 million federal grant from the National Institutes of Health.  The money will be used to create a Center of Excellence for Big Data Computing on the University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus.

University of Illinois Genomic Biology officials say the center will attempt to create an analytical tool used by biomedical researchers for the examination of gene-based data.

The University of Illinois' Department of Computer Science, College of Engineering, Coordinated Science Laboratory, and National Center for Supercomputing, as well as the Institute for Genomic Biology will be involved with the center.
