Australian National University (ANU) addresses the computing demands of genome research

As scientific research becomes more and more complex, scientists need new, scalable ways to store and analyze ever-larger troves of data. They also need unprecedented amounts of raw computing power to process the data they obtain and deliver timely results that enable projects to stay on track and within budget. To ensure that their research adheres to these restraints, modern-day scientists need to increase efficiency via automation and other approaches whenever they can, wherever they can. Artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud technology give scientists the tools they need to advance research faster than ever before, get results quicker, and achieve scientific breakthroughs like never before. In this video, you'll learn how researchers at Australian National University (ANU) are using Microsoft Azure to dramatically shorten the amount of time they spend on data analysis, enabling faster publication of their cutting-edge genome research.
