Illinois Bringing Next-Gen Genomics Computing to India, as Featured in Magazine Current Science
IGB Director Gene Robinson, with Professor of Engineering Ravishankar K. Iyer, recently spoke in Bangalore, India on a next-generation computing project to allow the analysis of large amounts of genomic sequence data, as reported in the September 25 issue of Current Science.
"The genomic data is doubling every 1.5 years," says Robinson. "The current methods are unable to handle large datasets. Therefore, a new technology framework is required."
