"Biodiversity Informatics: An Emerging Computational Science"

Host: Prof. Dr. Marcus Koch

Abstract:
Biodiversity informatics and phyloinformatics in particular are currently
facing a paradigm shift toward becoming a 'real' computational science.
Molecular sequencing technologies are developing at a rapid pace, providing the biological sciences with enormous amounts of new data.
Due to the necessity to process (and store) huge amounts of data, we expect the field to undergo an analogous transition that physics or computational fluid dynamics underwent 20
to 30 years ago. For instance, we are already facing such data analysis challenges in the 1000 insect transcriptome sequencing project (www.1kite.org). Such evolutionary studies require software that scales far beyond a multi-core node, that can be checkpointed and restarted with low overhead, and that can accommodate
the memory requirements of whole-genome datasets under likelihood-based models.

As an example of the efforts to turn biodiversity informatics into a computational science, I will describe RAxML-Light,
a dedicated tool for large-scale phylogenetic inference on supercomputers under maximum likelihood.
RAxML-Light implements a light-weight checkpointing mechanism, deploys 128-bit (SSE3) and 256-bit (AVX) vector intrinsics, offers two orthogonal memory saving
techniques, and provides a fine-grain production-level MPI (Message Passing Interface) parallelization of
the likelihood function.
To demonstrate scalability and robustness of the code, we inferred a phylogeny on a simulated DNA alignment (1481 taxa, 20,000,000 bp) using 672 cores. This
alignment required one TeraByte of RAM to compute the likelihood score on a single tree.
