08apr12:00 pm12:45 pmAccelerate genomics discovery with SRA in the cloud


Event Details

Accelerating discovery requires fast access to genomic data as well as on-demand computational resources. NCBI, with support from NIH’s STRIDES initiative, has moved all of the Sequence Read Archive (SRA) to the Google (GCP) and Amazon (AWS) clouds, providing unparalleled data access to its 14+ petabytes of data.

In this webinar, we will go over how to best leverage the cloud to speed up research and discovery. We’ll introduce new and existing tools and data including BigQuery, SRA Toolkit, and more. You’ll hear about real workflows in the cloud, including an example of the work NCBI was able to accomplish in the cloud using SRA data and a case study from an SRA cloud customer. By the end of this webinar, you will know where to look for new cloud products from NCBI, access help information to get you started, and will have expanded your knowledge on how to run your analyses efficiently in the cloud.
