    The Department of Health established Genomics England (GEL) to sequence 100,000 whole genomes from NHS patients with rare diseases. Upon successful completion of the project, GEL transitioned from project to platform, using AWS to give researchers intelligent tools and secure access to these massive datasets to help them advance personalized, predictive, and preventative genomics healthcare.

    "We knew that putting the data generated from the 100,000 Genome Project into the hands of the research community would play a vital role in accelerating scientific breakthroughs, and we’re working to migrate our research and clinical tools, alongside our data to the AWS Cloud to do just that. By hosting on AWS, we can democratize access to our data. All researchers need is a small budget to fund compute costs and access to a compute.”
