IT Infrastructure in the Life Sciences: Trends and Statistics
Sponsored by Avere Systems
A recent survey conducted by Cambridge Healthtech Institute of 100 professionals responsible for storage infrastructure in scientific organizations indicated which issues were most challenging and the technologies being evaluated to keep pace with quickly changing research demands. Big-promise solutions like cloud and associated data movement and adoption concerns were shown to be top-of-mind within the community. In this podcast, BioTeam’s Chris Dagdigian joins Avere System’s Jeff Tabor to not only discuss the survey results, but also to apply field examples of how the gap between IT budgets and research demands is being addressed.
Big Science, Biomedicine, & Cyberinfrastructure
Sponsored by EMC Isilon
The exponential decline in the cost of next generation sequencing is making it possible to discover rare genetic variants that explain uncommon childhood diseases and cancer. To detect these rare variants requires the aggregation and analysis of genomics and clinical data at scale. Consequently the need to manage and to compute biomedical data at scale is driving the dramatic rethinking and re-architecting of IT infrastructures. To jump start its rethinking, the biomedical research community has an opportunity to take advantage of the US national cyberinfrastructure, a resource heavily leveraged by the high energy physics, astronomy, and climatology disciplines. During this podcast, EMC Isilon and Ian T. Foster from the Computation Institute discuss the opportunities for using the US cyberinfrastructure for biomedical research.

 Listen (4:23) Data gathering undergoing a revolution

"I like making it easier to share things," says John Wilbanks, a senior fellow at the Kauffman Foundation. Also a member of the Board of Directors for Sage Bionetworks, Wilbanks has been involved in numerous projects having to do with opening up important content and data. Now he runs the Consent to Research Project where he is designing systems that allow people to donate their research to data. Wilbanks discusses the disconnect that is emerging between informed consent and the realities of the digital revolution. In this comprehensive interview he talks about the Access2Research petition he recently spearheaded to extend the NIH's open access policy to the other federal agencies.

Why does John like making it easier to share things? Hear about his past and find out his thoughts on data gathering in the future.
