Smithsonian Institution Case Study
Using AWS, the Smithsonian Institution Data Science Team can scale instances up and down as needed, allowing the team to annotate genomes in parallel while also managing costs. The Smithsonian Data Science Team's mission is to implement solutions that will accelerate science and lower the bar for entry to genomics research, not only for Smithsonian scientists but for biodiversity researchers in general. The team is working to improve a critical part of the genome-analysis pipeline—annotation. The AWS Cloud has enabled the Smithsonian Institution to share their research and increase knowledge through open data science.
