Nov 3, 2015

The Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC) is a pilot project funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to co-localize large genomics datasets and computational resources in the cloud. The CGC aims to bring bioinformatics tools directly to NCI-generated genomics data such as TCGA, to decrease the costs, set-up time, and support burden of local storage and computational infrastructure. We are delighted to be one of three organizations selected by the NCI, along with the Broad Institute and the Institute for Systems Biology, to build a Cloud Pilot platform able to meet the next generation of challenges in genomics research.
