Bio-IT World recently convened an all-star panel to discuss infrastructure, standards, privacy issues and more, in the COVID-19 era. Here are some quotable quotes from our friends at ESnet and Bioteam:

Bio-IT World sat down with Raumann to talk about the challenges she sees in data management in the life sciences and the solutions available.
