What is interesting here is that the service will be using Amazon Web Services along with the software from Geospiza, a Seattle-based maker of software to support biological research. With the large amounts of data to analyze and research with genomic research, this makes sense to embrace perhaps an even virtual cloud. BD
Analyzing the huge amounts of data involved in mapping DNA sequences requires formidable computing resources, but not every scientist working in the field has access to a large network or supercomputer, making genomics the perfect candidate for cloud-computing. Applied Biosystems and Geospiza have announced the launch of a genetic analysis solution using cloud-computing that aims to put the tools required for this important field of study into more hands.
