The Grand Challenge of Biology

EisenQuote.jpg
I was at a tech meeting hosted by Amazon Web Services to see how I may use some of their cloud computing services for this site. One segment of the presentation was devoted to customers who use AWS for their sites or work. The slide you see in this image comes from Michael Schatz, Researcher at the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, University of Maryland, and developer of CloudBurst, "a parallel read-mapping algorithm optimized for mapping next-generation sequence data to the human genome and other reference genomes, for use in a variety of biological analyses including SNP discovery, genotyping, and personal genomics."

I just thought I'd share the slide because I was surprised to see this type of work featured at the meeting and the quote by Jonathan Eisen is worth sharing.
