To a large extent, advanced Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and genomics broadly are driving the trend. This webinar will explore in detail how the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill developed a powerful IT infrastructure, blending new and traditional technology, to accommodate modern genomics research. The webinar will highlight the NCGENES project, Big Data challenges, technology tradeoff considerations, and specific technologies deployed such as iRODS.
