The rapidly falling cost of genome sequencing now makes it possible to obtain the genome sequences of large populations. The data collected from this infrastructure will enable the development of new therapies. Longer term, the goal is for an entire country to be sequenced and for the resulting data to be embedded in the national healthcare system. In this talk, Alex Dickinson, SVP for Strategic Initiatives at Illumina, will discuss how Illumina’s BaseSpace and AWS are enabling this journey by driving innovations in genome sequencing for data collection, and cloud computing for data analysis.
