Quality assurance for biological applications inside Debian

Description of the project: The Debian Med project has packaged a lot of applications for bioinformatics. In GSoC 2016 a big step for Continuous Integration of the most important applications regarding to the usage statistics provided by popularity contest was done. While it would be important to continue this effort to cover even more applications with sensible testing in this work some other tasks to enhance the quality of the Debian Med packages were uncovered. Besides testing single packages it needs to be verified that related sets of packages are playing well together and are packaged in a way that the user can expect the maximum performance out of the packages (for instance by ensuring that MPI features are used if available and the hardware features are used as best as possible).
