The workshop “Towards Cloud Solutions For Life Sciences And Translational Medicine” is a platform for discussing the needs and demands for establishing a comprehensive cloud solution for computing and storage of various data types in life sciences. International experts from science and industry will present state-of-the-art solutions to meet these demands.
The workshop has been initiated in the context of the Applied & Translational Genomics Cloud (ATGC) and the framework of the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI).
ATGC will serve as a cloud for high-throughput data in the life sciences in Germany. While its initial focus will be on cancer genomics data, subsequent extensions will facilitate an expansion to other life science areas including other diseases (e.g. heart and lung disease) and data types (e.g. microbiomes). de.NBI is a national infrastructure supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research providing comprehensive, high-quality bioinformatics services to users in life sciences research and biomedicine. New computing infrastructure in terms of performance and scalability is necessary in order to satisfy the growing need of the bioinformatics community for processing power.
