Penn State’s Biological Engineering Department wanted to give biotech researchers an easy way to share research methods and data and run computationally intensive simulations on DNA. By moving its research portal to AWS, Penn State made it easy for 6,000 researchers worldwide to design more than 50,000 synthetic DNA sequences, using Penn State’s design methods and optimization algorithms.
