KISTI, which began as Korea Science & Technology Information Center(KORSTIC) in 1962, was launched in 2001 by integrating Korea Institute of Industry and Technology Information(KINITI) and Korea Research & Development Information Center(KORDIC). At the day, Oh Tae-Seog, the 1st vice minister of Korean Ministry of Science and ICT, Lee Sang-Min, the national assembly member of Korea, and Kim Bok-chul, the chairperson of National Research Council of Science & Technology of Korea, attended the ceremony.  Starting with the DDS(Document Delivery Service) in 1962, KISTI has laid the foundation for the establishment of a national S&T data platform, including the Korea's first online information retrieval service in 1978 and the implementation of Hangeul(Korean language) searching service in 1985. In addition, regional information centers were built near the seats of city halls and provincial governments to promote a business supporting. In 1988, KISTI introduced the National Supercomputer No. 1(Cray), and also in the same year, the KREONET, a national S&T research network, was established to set a infrastructure for the R&D cooperation beyond the constraint of space.  From 2001, KISTI was selected as an institute dedicated to establish a management and distribution system for S&T information, and in 2005, KISTI opened a network-based information protect service and expanded its cyber security infrastructure through the forming of Science and Technology Cyber Security Center to secure the security of goverment-funded institutes. In addition, it was appointed as a general managing institute of National Science & Technology Information Service(NTIS) in the same year. Through this, KISTI could integrate, manage and serve the national R&D data from all ministries. NTIS was awarded UN Public Service Award in 2012, and it also was exported its technology to Costa Rica to build their own R&D management system.  In 2009, Association of Science and Technology Information(ASTI) was launched to construct an industry-academia-institute knowledge ecosystem for supporting regional SMEs which is suffering to commercialize R&D technologies. As of december 2021, ASTI had 15 regional organizations under a nationwide one and about 13,000 members. And they held a national conference and knowledge forums every year. In the DX era, KISTI also has been promoting a DX-ASTI strategy for supporting all ASTI members' digital transformation.  Also in 2018, KISTI introduced the 5th national supercomputer, NURION to provide world-class supercomputing infrastructure for Korean researchers.  On the other hand, for strengthening S&T data platform system, S&T knowledge infrastructure service(ScienceON), national research data platform(DataON), national open access platform(AccessON) was built. Through this, KISTI has been solidifying its position as the CDO.  In the era of DX, KISTI is linking and cooperating S&T data, supercomputing, and intelligent information analysis infrastructure through the STI ecosystem which is established over 60 years. With constructing a S&T data dam, KISTI set a foundation for the AI linking and convergence of S&T knowledge resources. Also KISTI is leading the change of R&D trends in S&T DX for transition to digital economy through the establishment of quantum cryptographic network infrastructure and the cloud transformation of S&T information service. In addition, KISTI use the data to solve national pending issues like early flood warning, fine dust reduction, public transportation optimization and earthquake damage prediction. Moreover KISTI is driving the development of future agricultural data farms, global supply chain monitoring, and audio data utilization technology.  At this day, Oh Tae-Seog, the 1st vice minister of Korean Ministry of Science and ICT praised efforts and achievements during 60 years and said, "KISTI, which has accumulated capabilities in S&T data and digital platform field, has to play a key role in leading S&T innovation and the digital transformation."  Kim Jae-soo, president of KISTI said, "From the foundation of 1962, the ultimate goal of KISTI is to make Korea a world power through S&T innovation. As a national research institute of S&T data, KISTI will contribute to strengthen the S&T hegemonic competitiveness of Korea through opening the open science era, developing global super-gap computing technology, establishing intelligent data convergence analysis system and supporting S&T DX.

    KISTI achieves Parallelization of world-class Genome Wide Association Study(GWAS)- Optimization of Genome Wide Association Study's statistical error correction through parallel computing - A. Summary of the MPI-GWAS algorithm: Simultaneous/parallel analysis through MPI-Rank for quick calculation of N-Permutations B-C. Performance evaluation results: (B) Decrease in overall elapsed time by increasing parallel processing nodes(C) Expandability of elapsed time as simultaneous increasing with parallel processing nodes and data  KISTI announced that it has developed a large-scale supercomputing software to correct statistical errors* in Genome Wide Association Study(GWAS).  * It refers to a phenomenon in which the statistical significance calculation result through the large-scale GWAS is reported as false-positive. Representative cases of false-positive in the field of GWAS are that genetic mutations with low posibility of a genetic disease are reported to be highly related to the disease.  Using the SW developed at Nurion, KISTI's 5th National Supercomputer, genetic mutations related to diabetes and high blood pressure from repoted 84,295 genetic mutations in 7,523 Korean cohorts and 4,242 British cohorts, were derived through GWAS calculations, and corrected those statistical errors by performing up to 7 billion random permutations.  The supercomputing simulation SW can accelerate calculations by more than 300% compared to existing statistical programs through using up to 2,500 nodes* of Nurion.  * It is capable of performing about 7.5 petaflops (1 petaflops = 1,000 trillion instructions per second) and accounts for about 25% of the performance of Nurion.  The results of the GWAS analysis aim to select phenotype variation(disease or fruit weight, etc.), and the discovery of significant disease-related genetic mutaions is considered an important indicator of personalized health care and new varieties improvement in agriculture. Therefore, statistical error correction of GWAS results is essential.  The statistical error correction of GWAS remained a challenge in the field because of its vast calculation. KISTI confirmed that it is possible to correct the existing errors by large-scale supercomputing-based petaflops-class calculating through parallel computing technology. Using Nurion, KISTI performed on GWAS with the world-class resources(7.5 petaflops).  Dr. Kwon Oh-kyung and Dr. Paik Hyo-jung said, "This GWAS parallelization SW has been released its source code*, so that various genetic researchers can freely use it. We are expecting a research efficiency using supercomputer in the genetic field."  Its research was published on March 31st in Genomics & Informatics**.  * https://github.com/hypaik/proj_MPIGWAS  ** Paik et al, MPI-GWAS: a supercomputing-aid permutation approach for genome-wide association studies  Jeong Min-joong, director of Supercomputing Application Center said,  "KISTI supports optimal parallelization* technology and computational resources for supercomputer users who need large-scale calculation. We expect that the distributed supercomputing simulation software will provide the research efficiency in the bio and medical fields."  * Optimal parallelization is a technology that solves difficult problems by developing code that allows thousands of CPUs to perform simultaneously on supercomputer.
