  • TBA

Please join us for our talk: Globus and Globus Genomics: How Science-as-a-Service is Accelerating Discovery

Update: Watch video of Ian and Ravi's talks here.

Room: San Polo 3501A

Session BDT310.

In this talk, hear about two high-performance research services developed and operated by the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago running on AWS., a high-performance, reliable, robust file transfer service, has over 10,000 registered users who have moved over 25 petabytes of data using the service. The Globus service is operated entirely on AWS, leveraging Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, Amazon S3, Amazon SES, Amazon SNS, etc. Globus Genomics is an end-to-end next-gen sequencing analysis service with state-of-art research data management capabilities. Globus Genomics uses Amazon EC2 for scaling out analysis, Amazon EBS for persistent storage, and Amazon S3 for archival storage. Attend this session to learn how to move data quickly at any scale as well as how to use genomic analysis tools and pipelines for next generation sequencers using Globus on AWS.
