Initiative for Parallel Bioinformatics (IPAB) was founded in 1999 and is a formal non-profit organization (registered at Tokyo metropolitan government). IPAB is a group of individual researchers and private companies aiming at contributing to the research and industrialization of bioinformatics and biomedical computing, by means of state-of-the-art information technologies, like as parallel processing, Grid technology, machine learning, knowledge processing, etc.

 Current interest covers accelerator technologies, large-scale HPC and Grid techniques, e-Drug Discovery, clinical information processing, and so on. (See -> Members Place -> IPAB Working Groups page).

 The Initiative for Parallel Bioinformatics aims to offer a framework and opportunities for exchanging information between members and to propel joint research and development of new interdisciplinary technologies. We are also aiming at producing prototype software and systems delivered from IPAB, and proposing wide collaborative research projects for public funding opportunities.
