B ioinformaticians are in demand today. With advances in biotech, next-generation sequencing, and software analytics, there is tremendous opportunity for bioinformaticians who have combined expertise in biology, statistics, and computational analysis.

And not just opportunity for career satisfaction and advancement—but opportunity to solve important healthcare and environmental problems. Opportunity to make a real difference.

But finding the answers to today’s tough omics questions is not easy: there are challenges.

Managing the flood of incoming data is one of the challenges. As is providing shared access to data, for hundreds and sometimes thousands of scientists worldwide.

Which is why the team at Quantum feels privileged to deliver life sciences storage solutions to our bioinformatics and genomics customers—to help solve their data management headaches.

In February, I collaborated with the Director of Vital-IT at the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics—Ioannis Xenarios—to present a webinar titled:

“Data for Decades: Managing Bioinformatics Data for the Long Term at SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics”

In the webinar, Professor Xenarios outlines the bioinformatics challenges at his institute—what the workflow looks like—how things are changing—what requirements the genomics workflow and high performance computing impose on the underlying storage infrastructure—and why specialized storage matters.

If you want to learn how the team at SIB addresses their data management challenges—and how StorNext multi-tier storage helps the scientists at SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics cost-effectively archive and manage petabytes of genomics data—then watch the Data for Decades webinar. Enjoy!

Want to learn more about how the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics uses StorNext to manage over 5 petabytes of valuable research data and provide access to data for over 750 scientists from member universities?
