The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) Bioinformatics team specializes in the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data including de novo
assemblies, re-sequencing projects, expression analysis and metagenomics. Using the SGI® UV™, TGAC is able to solve many challenges by leveraging large shared memory computing.
In this webinar, we'll discuss:
- How TGAC uses DNA sequencing to understand differences in genetic make-ups with large data sets
- The use of computational approaches to analyze sequence data and understand gene regulation
- Implementation and uses of open-source software in DNA sequencing
- How a large shared memory platform solves particular challenges of scaling and managing data through the genome assembly pipeline
The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) is a research institute in the UK focused on the application of state-of-the-art genomics and bioinformatics to advance plant, animal and microbial research to promote a sustainable bio-economy. TGAC is a hub for innovative bioinformatics founded on research, analysis and interpretation of multiple, complex data sets. TGAC hosts one of the largest computing hardware facilities dedicated to life science research in all of Europe.
