Genomics is increasingly becoming a cloud computing play. More and more researchers and practitioners are turning to cloud computing to solve big data challenges, scale, improve time-to-market, and better manage cost efficiencies.
Our full-day conference is designed to provide the information you need to succeed with your cloud computing projects. The event will feature presentations by Dr. Deepak Singh and Dr. Matt Wood of AWS, customer presentations, how-to sessions, and deeper technical discussions around topics including next generation sequencing analysis on AWS and building elastic high performance clusters on AWS. The event is specifically designed for technical and senior manager audiences from the life sciences field.
Reasons to attend
- Hear how genome sequencing customers of AWS have successfully built and migrated large scale projects to the cloud.
- Gain a deeper understanding of Amazon Web Services, including best practices for developing, architecting, and securing applications in the cloud. Gain a deeper understanding of doing large scale, big data analysis with AWS.
