Genomics in the Cloud

SESSION: Genomics in the Cloud

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Matt Wood, Michael Schatz


Cloud computing is helping to unlock and enable modern genomics. Fuelled by lower costs and wider availability of second and third generation sequencing technologies, cloud computing is playing a central role in managing the size and complexity of today's genomics data. This Birds of a Feather session aims to discuss real world usage, best practices and the growing ecosystem of tools and services to help analyse, store, manage, share and collaborate around genomic data in the cloud. We'll introduce the best of breed analytics tools, distributed technologies and use cases before opening the floor for a discussion of best practices, gotchas and the future of genomic tools with the arrival of petabyte-scale genomics.
