Preparing for the Next Step in Genomic Analysis
The pace and scale of genomics research is now less defined by the science itself than by the computational and storage architectures used to extract insight from the genomic data generated. This session focuses on how to enable genomic workflow acceleration through a converged compute and data management platform.

Session Abstract – PMWC 2017 Silicon Valley

Session Synopsis: Enabling the oncology community to harness the power of clinical data and electronic health care records to improve standard care requires data sharing, aggregation, and harmonization of research-grade datasets, including a supportive infrastructure. This session focuses on novel partnerships and high performance computing, that enable clinical workflow acceleration and decision making for precision medicine.
