About the Lab

Professor Grossman’s research group focuses on bioinformatics, data mining, cloud computing, data intensive computing, and related areas.  Current research projects include: Bionimbus (http://www.bionimbus.org) a cloud-based system for managing, analyzing and sharing genomic data and the Open Science Data Cloud (OSDC), a large-scale distributed cloud-based infrastructure for managing, analyzing, integrating and sharing scientific data.  The OSDC is operated by the Open Cloud Consortium (OCC), which is a not-for-profit supporting the cloud community by operating cloud infrastructure.  Professor Grossman is also interested in developing new algorithms for the large-scale analysis projects of genomic and phenotypic data.

National Cancer Institute Contract

With a contract with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), IGSB Core Investigator Robert Grossman will be Director of the Genomic Data Commons (GDC). This initiative will establish the nation’s most comprehensive computational facility to collect, standardize, store, and disseminate genomic information gathered by NCI. The GDC will provide an interactive system to expand access for scientists around the country, speed up collaborative research on projects at all scales, and lead to faster discoveries about cancer.
