A Bio-IT World webinar sponsored by EMC, Intel and RENCI
Big Data management and analysis have become dominant features of biomedical research and healthcare delivery. This relatively recent change has forced a dramatic rethinking and re-architecting of supporting IT infrastructures. To a large extent, advanced NGS technologies and genomics broadly are driving the trend. This webinar will explore in detail how the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill developed a powerful IT infrastructure, blending new and traditional technology, to accommodate modern genomics research. The webinar will highlight the NCGENES project, Big Data challenges, technology tradeoff considerations, and specific technologies deployed such as iRODS.
