Internet2 Global Summit meeting showcases how community collaboration and advanced
technologies are key ingredients in life sciences big data research
WASHINGTON, April 13, 2015—For many researchers in the life sciences, Big Data is not just a buzz word—it’s the daily reality for carrying out their work in areas like genomics, which is expected to equal
if not surpass the data output of the particle physics community. For many scientists, in order to keep pace with the data deluge, the often less glamorous side of big data research—the network, computing and cloud architecture required to support their work—must
be at the forefront of their minds. At the Internet2
Global Summit meeting taking place April 26-30 in Washington, D.C., researchers like Genetics and Biochemistry Associate Professor Alex Feltus of Clemson University will come together with network engineers, chief information
officers, and other technology leaders in the research and education community to discuss ways they can collaborate to advance research capabilities in IT infrastructure and applications.
