Abstract: 

The use of genomics in modern biology has revolutionized the speed of innovation for the discovery of medicines. The COVID pandemic response has quickened genetic research and driven the rapid development of vaccines. Genomics, however, requires a significant amount of compute and data storage to aid discovery. This session is for IT professionals who are faced with delivering and supporting IT solutions for the required compute and data storage for genomics workflows. It will feature viewpoints from both the bioinformatics and technology perspectives with a focus on some of these compute and data storage challenges.

We will discuss:

  • How to best store and manage these large genomics datasets
  • Methods for sharing these large datasets for collaborative analysis.
  • Legal and ethical implications of storing shareable data in the cloud
  • Transferring large data sets and the impact on storage and networking
