[…] the compute and storage burden of the genome sequencing data explosion. however, moving personal genome data analysis to the cloud can raise serious privacy concerns. here, we devise a method named balaur, a privacy preserving read mapper for hybrid clouds based on locality sensitive hashing and kmer voting. balaur can securely outsource a substantial fraction of the computation to the public […]

[…] various models. mullen et al. [] showed that the graph database can find novel usage (that is, drug repositioning) through the traversing of various relationships between a gene and disease. balaur et al. [] showed that the graph database is effective in investigating correlation between genetic and epigenetic factors in genetic and epigenetic data of colon cancer., in this work, we set […]
