Virginia Tech Transforms Life Sciences Research with Big Data Solution in Azure

DNA sequencing analysis is a form of life sciences research that has the potential to lead to a wide range of medical and pharmaceutical breakthroughs. However, this type of analysis requires supercomputing resources and Big Data storage that many researchers lack. Working through a grant provided by the National Science Foundation in partnership with Microsoft, a team of computer scientists at Virginia Tech addressed this challenge by developing an on-demand, cloud-computing model using the Microsoft Azure HDInsight Service. By moving to an on-demand cloud computing model, researchers will now have easier, more cost-effective access to DNA sequencing tools and resources, which could lead to even faster, more exciting advancements in medical research.
