Usable, Collaborative, Reproducible, and Extensible: Four Key Tenets of Cloud Computing

Brandi Davis-Dusenbery, Ph.D.

The Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC) is one of three pilot systems funded by the National Cancer Institute with the aim of co-localizing massive genomics datasets, like The Cancer Genomics Atlas (TCGA), alongside secure and scalable computational resources for analysis. TCGA comprises multidimensional matched tumor-normal data from over 11,000 patients and 33 cancer types. …
