The Next Frontier and New Summit for Precision Medicine


Tue Apr 23 18:30:00 GMT 2019 - Tue Apr 23 20:30:00 GMT 2019


Scale Los Angeles
3415 South Sepulveda Blvd. 10th Fl.
Los Angeles, 90034


Join Biocom for a lunch and learn hosted by IBM Systems Group.From the world's fastest genomics pipeline to largest variant database, we'll share the cutting-edge advancement to accelerate and scale precision medicine workloads -- preprocessing, postprocessing and data sciences/AI. We'll highlight three particular challenges in making genomics platform "smarter": 1) "autonomous pipeline" -- end-end automation of genomics workflow with full provenance tracking; 2) "radar on data" -- metadata tagging, indexing and searching to enable efficient management and access to billions of data objects; 3) multi-cloud deployment from on-premise to public clouds. We'll showcase respective prototypes for full bioinformatics pipeline, automated PHI data detector and a cloud-enabled RNAseq pipeline. The underlying reference architecture for high performance data and AI (HPDA) is orchestrating world's largest supercomputer (Summit) and can also be implemented on a much smaller scale to power a lab, company or institution in the next frontier of precision medicine.
