The availability of high-throughput technologies, such as microarray and mass spectrometry, and the diffusion of genomics and proteomics studies to large populations, are producing an increasing amount of experimental and clinical data. Biological databases and bioinformatics tools are key tools for organizing and exploring such biological and biomedical data with the aim to discover new knowledge in biology and medicine. However the storage, preprocessing and analysis of experimental data is becoming the main bottleneck of the analysis pipeline.
