Workshop by Bull and the CNAG on High-Performance Computing and omics data

June 13th - 10am

Aula Fèlix Serratosa, Edifici Clúster

Parc Científic de Barcelona

High-Performance Computing enables the CNAG to manage the over 600 Gbases of sequencing data produced every day, this is the equivalent of completely sequencing six human genomes every 24 hours.In this Workshop, Bull and the CNAG will explain why HPC is so important in the analysis of omics data.
