Introducing the Broad Institute Workbench: a Cloud-based Platform for Data Analysis, Storage, and Management
The Broad Institute & Broad Institute Genomic Services introduced the Workbench at this year's ASHG conference. Selling out the day before and with standing room only during the workshop itself, it showcased Workbench - Past, Present, and Future.
Attendees listened to user stories from the Broad Institute's Cancer and Medical Population Platforms, focusing on Workbench's capabilities, (large computational power, limitless storage, and efficient analysis), to advance research. The workshop also showcased Workbench as the data storage and analysis platform for the Precision Medicine Initiative utilizing not only genomic data, but data types, such as phenotypic/medical records and an overview on the functionality of the software itself.
