We blog about genomics. We also make a platform for open-source analysis of next generation data in the cloud. Hello.

Making efficient use of your compute resources

Andrea Szollossi

Platform

The non-trivial matter of optimising compute resources available for your analysis is brought into the spotlight. We discuss when you might benefit from optimising the compute resources available for your analysis as well as how you can achieve this on the Seven Bridges Platform. Examples of effective management of large

Launching the next DREAM Challenge on the Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud

Nick

Cancer Genomics Cloud, Science

The explosion in biomedical data requires ongoing development of analysis methods and community standards. A proven way of driving innovation is through Challenges—competitions to develop crowdsourced methods to answer specific scientific questions. These challenges offer unique opportunities for academic and commercial communities to advance science by developing precise algorithms and

Cancer Genomics Cloud

The Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC) is one of three pilot systems funded by the National Cancer Institute with the aim of co-localizing massive genomics datasets, like The Cancer Genomics Atlas (TCGA), alongside secure and scalable computational resources for analysis. TCGA comprises multidimensional matched tumor-normal data from over 11,000
