Bionimbus is a petabyte scale community cloud for managing, analyzing and sharing large genomics datasets that is operated by the not-for-profit Open Cloud Consortium. It contains public datasets, such as the 1000 Genomes dataset. We recently updated Bionimbus so that researchers can analyze data from controlled datasets, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) in a secure and compliant fashion. Read more.

Marcia Kean (Feinstein Kean Healthcare), Kenneth Buetow (Arizona State University), Dave King (Exaptive), Robert McBurney (Accelerated Cure Project for MS)
The use of massive amounts of data to battle the major diseases of our time has so far generated only massive amounts of publicity. Can a new generation of cyberinfrastructure harness Big Data to transform our understanding of disease and truly combat these two public health challenges? Collaborators in the Data Liquidity Coalition believe they have the right approach to fulfill the promise. Read more.
