Cloud Computing Panel

September 17, 1:00 – 2:30pm

Ian Foster

Ian Foster joins other community leaders in discussing how cloud computing is transforming research. Ian will focus on Globus Genomics, the software-as-a-service for next-generation sequencing analysis. Globus Genomics combines the robust data management services of Globus with the elastic computing capacity of Amazon Web Service, and the flexibility of the Galaxy workflow system to deliver simple yet powerful NGS analysis capabilities to research labs of all shapes and sizes.
