Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Fiocruz Genome Comparison Project is a collaborative effort involving Brazil's Oswaldo Cruz Institute and IBM's World Community Grid, designed to produce a database comparing the genes from many genomes with each other using SSEARCH. The program SSEARCH performs a rigorous Smith-Waterman alignment between a protein sequence and another protein sequence, a protein database, a DNA or a DNA library. The nature of the computation in the project allows it to easily take advantage of distributed computing. This, along with the likely humanitarian benefits of the research, has led the World Community Grid to run the Fiocruz project. All products are in the public domain by contract with WCG.
