Cloud computing

Multiyear partnership brings together advanced technology, industry expertise and scale to help researchers interpret an unprecedented amount of biomedical data and derive insights to advance the treatment of human diseases

At the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard we generate a lot of data. We also develop the cutting-edge software tools researchers need to find signals in the noise. We are committed to sharing tools and data openly with the entire scientific community, and have dedicated a team to constantly improve our Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK), which is the software package we developed for analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard is teaming up with Google Genomics to explore how to break down major technical barriers that increasingly hinder biomedical research by addressing the need for computing infrastructure to store and process enormous datasets, and by creating tools to analyze such data and unravel long-standing mysteries about human health.
