Microsoft at ASHG 2019

Visit the Microsoft Genomics team at the American Society of Human Genetics Conference 2019 at Booth #1421 and learn how you can enable your genomics sample-2-answer pipelines using Microsoft Genomics service and Partner solutions.

The increased demand for next-generation sequencing (NGS) is driving healthcare organizations, academic institutions, and clinical labs to look for cloud-based solutions for running their genomics analysis. Organizations can leverage Microsoft Genomics service, a turnkey cloud implementation of the Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) and the Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) for secondary analysis, allowing researchers and medical professionals to get genomic variant results in hours, versus days. The service is ISO-certified and compliant with HIPAA regulations and offers price predictability for genome sequencing needs.

Organizations can also bring their existing pipelines or build new ones on Azure and leverage the power of Microsoft’s cloud to run them at scale. Instead of managing datacenters and local HPC infrastructure, they can instead take advantage of Microsoft’s scale and experience in running exabyte-scale workloads. Azure provides high memory and HPC-class CPUs to help get results fast. Organizations can scale up and down based upon their needs and pay only for what they use to manage their costs. More importantly, Azure provides trusted industry-leading approaches to security, privacy, compliance, and data durability in the cloud.
