on 'Big Four' (Common Krait, Black Cobra, Russell's viper and saw-scaled viper) snakes in Pakistan through DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) analysis and molecular biology techniques.Molecular biology has helped mitochondrial DNA studies to give an insight into structure of a population, gene flow, hybridization, biogeography, and phylogenetics. Phylogenetics shows relationships among organism and genes.
Accelerating Science by Integrating Commercial Cloud Resources in the CIPRES Science Gateway: CIPRES is a web portal that allows scientists around the world to analyze DNA and protein sequence data by providing access to parallel phylogenetics codes run on large high-performance computing (HPC) clusters provided by the NSF-funded eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) program and currently runs analyses for about 12,000 scientists per year.
