This forum will feature a presentation about HPC, genomics, data management and workflows by John Pearson, Senior Bioinformatics Manager from the Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics.
The Queensland Centre for Medical Genomics (QCMG) at the University of Queensland is the Australian arm of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), a group of 15 nations that have collectively committed to sequencing 21,000 cancer samples in the largest genomics effort in human history. QCMG has 17 next-generation sequencers and a custom informatics infrastructure designed to support the project. QCMG has 2 PB of tape, 350TB of disk across two tiers, 800 dedicated cores across 2 clusters and a digital asset management system (LiveArc), all managed by an in-house analysis pipeline driven by a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). Wherever possible, QCMG leveraged the University of Queensland’s existing HPC infrastructure by augmenting and extending existing hardware and software, in an effort to minimise costs.
Location:234 Queensberry Street, room 227.
No RSVP is required. If you want further information, please send an email to Forum Coordinator Sara Ogston firstname.lastname@example.org.
