Next Generation Sequencing – Elements for Success
SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING presents an interactive, educational, streaming audio webcast   This webcast addresses directions for next-generation sequencing, solutions available to provide the scalable HPC infrastructure demanded by the research, and successful implementation of next-generation sequencing in a clinical and translational research environment. The latest generation of life science instruments boasts both huge advances in technology as well as significant reduction in costs. Today’s sequencers generate data more quickly and in much higher volumes than previous technologies. This poses an opportunity and a challenge for scientists – and has identified new requirements for computing and storage to support the acquisition, analysis, interpretation, management and storage of data generated by these instruments. As the research community adopts these new instruments, a robust HPC architecture is required to meet the dramatically increased computational and storage requirements resulting from this research. Listen as our panel of experts discusses today’s trends in next-generation sequencing, including presentations by industry leaders in research computing, including: • Partners HealthCare, a leading integrated health provider • Illumina, an industry-leading instrument provider • HP, an experienced provider of scalable HPC infrastructure   Presented by:   In Association with: Live Webcast Tuesday, October 28, 2008 2:00 p.m. ET; 11:00 a.m. PT Duration: 1 Hour     Moderator Suzanne Tracy Editor-in-ChiefSCIENTIFIC COMPUTING Panelists Brent Richter Director, ERIS, Enterprise Research ISPartners Healthcare Systems Douglas Brown Life Sciences Program ManagerHewlett Packard Abizar Lakdawalla Sr. Product ManagerIllumina
