CSIRO plans to analyze Human Genome by the implementation of Serverless ComputeAccording to Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) it is estimated that 50 percent of the world’s population will have their genome sequenced by 2025. Dr. Denis Bauer, transformational bioinformatics team leader explains that genomic data will be huge when compared to the data combined by Twitter, YouTube, and astronomy.
Study of information encoded in an individual’s DNA is called Genomics that allows researchers to study how genes impact health and disease. Here the Genome holds the blueprint for every cell in an individual’s body with information encoded in the genome where it produces approximately 20 exa-bytes of data per year and such large amounts of data bring about three main problems that are likely to be the following:
1. Huge volumes of data are not trivial to get hold
2. Burstable workloads may affect Genome
3. Consolidate data from Silos
She also explained that the transformational bioinformatics team is about to develop novel bioinformatics solutions using latest technologies like cloud and Big-data for research and industry sectors that especially focuses
The information that we’ve found in the genome for clinical practice and making decisions is not trivial and to overcome that we developed GenPhen-Insight, a tool that is specifically designed for scaling the growing need for genomic data in the future associates medical data with genomic data to improvise in real-time data, treatment diagnosis and treatment outcomes.
She concluded by saying that, “We started out the technology with one infrastructure and now we improvised it level by level and got better day by day in a very short time and I strongly believe that if we go server less technology we never look back again”.
