Tri-Con 2018: Leveraging the Cloud to Power Multi-Omics Research

The Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference kicks off next week in downtown San Francisco. Bringing together over 3,700 attendees, Tri-Con is one of the world’s leading international events in the field of drug discovery, development, and diagnostics. The program is fully-loaded with presentations highlighting advancements in cancer research, big data, molecular diagnostics, precision medicine, rare disease, human microbiome, and more.

Please join us for our presentations during the Converged IT & The Cloud program and the Microbiome-Based Precision Medicine Symposium. Can’t make it to our talks? Email us to schedule a meeting with a member of our team.

Title: The Infrastructure Requirements for Geno-Pheno Analysis on a Massive Scale
Speaker: Omar Serang, Chief Cloud Officer, DNAnexus
Talk Details: Monday, February 12th at 3:55pm – Moscone South Convention Center
Program: Converged IT & The Cloud


Learn how Biopharmas are delivering on the promise of precision medicine by leveraging genomics in R&D. A comprehensive security and privacy framework is required to provide auditability, data immutability and versioning to reproduce research. Learn about the necessary infrastructure to scale geno-pheno analysis, while maintaining stringent security and compliance controls.


Title: Mosaic, a Cloud-Based Community Platform for the Acceleration of Translational Microbiome Science
Speaker: Michalis Hadjithomas, Microbiome Lead, DNAnexus
Talk Details: Thursday, February 15th at 12:15pm, Hilton San Francisco – Union Square
Program: Microbiome-Based Precision Medicine Symposium


Mosaic provides a collaborative space where researchers can implement and compare microbiome methods through community challenges. The “Strains” series of challenges encourages the improvement of strain-level performance of bioinformatic tools. “Standards” addresses experimental and computational sources of variability in metagenomic analyses to promote accurate and reproducible NGS-based microbiome profiling.
