Outsourcing Science: Will the Cloud Transform Research?

Argonne Associate Laboratory Director Rick Stevens presents "Accelerating Bacterial Genomics and Metagenomics via Science Services," Friday, February 14, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. 

His lecture will take place during the session "Outsourcing Science: Will the Cloud Transform Research?"

Abstract

Professor Stevens will speak to experiences gained running the highly successful RAST and MG-RAST services for genome and metagenome sequence assembly and analysis. These services are used by tens of thousands of people, and have proved transformative in enabling researchers in many countries to contribute meaningfully to research in these domains.
