Superlink is a project of the biology and computer science department of the israeli Institute of Technology (Technion).

The project helps geneticists to discover genes, which trigger diseases like diabetes, hypertension, schizophrenia, cancer and others.

Therefore the genetic-compound-analysis is used. This is a statistic method to connect genetic functions to their respected positions on the chromosomes. Using this analysis, disease-triggering genes can be discovered. This method is computationally intensive and therfore the tasks are being split for distributed computing.. In order to analyse it, geneticists hand in their data, using the Superlink Online Portal. The task is then automatically parallelized and supplied to many computers in Technion, to the university of Wisconsin in Madison and to BOINC-users.

At the moment, the RAM requirement per work unit is at about 700 MB.

Duration is the average computing time needed, having the CPU clocked at the variable.
Deadline is the timespan, within which the Work unit needs to be finished.


Superlink@Technion uses the BOINC infrastructure. The registration, installation and configuration are described in the user manual.
