Bioinformatic Systems Standardization

Posdoctoral fellow: Dr. Juan Segura Salazar.

In bioinformatics is frequent to find that a laboratory produces programs and data bases that have been done or are simultaneously being elaborated in other places in the world. With base in this situation, some laboratories at international level are working in the elaboration of communication standards that facilitate one more a more rational integration of the effort of international investigation. The same problem happens to another scale: it is frequent that a student in a laboratory generates a great amount of programs within specific projects related to his studies, which are after finished the project in conditions difficult to be reused. It is therefore common that programs are rewritten by diverse members of a laboratory. To find a systematic way to modify this situation and generate a process that transforms possible and unstable program into stable and re-usable program will be very useful.
