Sponsored The speed of progress in genomics over recent years has been breathtaking – but it wouldn’t have been possible without advances in storage technology.
Try to print out a human genome and you’ll end up with a tower of A4 paper 300 feet high. Yet while the first human genome took six years to sequence, that same process now takes less than 24 hours, making personalized medicine a reality.
Needless to say, that means a massive amount of processing power, and storage to match. And the tech pros making this happen must tackle the same problems around data movement, management and processing, as any other data manager.
This is fascinating, life or death stuff, pointing the way to the future of medical treatments for the most complex diseases, and you can hear from the pros making this happen in this upcoming webcast, The storage that powers genomic sequencing, on September 30 at 5pm BST (9am PT).
Your host is our own Tim Phillips. He’ll be joined by James Lowery, CIO at non-profit personalized medicine pioneers TGen, as well as Ken Berta from Dell, and Nvidia’s George Vacek.
Together, they’ll explain exactly what it takes to build the sort of storage TGen’s HPC applications demand.
They’ll also discuss the challenge of bringing AI and machine learning to bear on personalized medicine, both today and in the future, and show just how they are working together to meet it.
Whether your professional interest is in genomics, storage or both, you should really join this one-of-a-kind webcast.
Signing up is easy – just drop a little of your own personal data here, and we’ll update your diary and nudge you on the day.
