      Abstract:

      DATE: August 2, 2016
      TIME:  8:00 AM PST  11:00 AM  ET



      The combination of the QIAGEN Biomedical Genomics Solution with the Intel® Scalable System Framework and Intel’s extensive optimization efforts of life sciences software codes offers a new hardware architecture. This new architecture reduces the need for purpose-built systems and instead offers a more flexible and scalable architecture for genomics workloads. This webinar will briefly cover some of the recent code optimization activities, provide an overview of the Intel® Scalable System Framework then focus on some vendor specific examples of reference architectures for the QIAGEN Biomedical Genomics Solution, including some metrics for estimating the recommended cluster size based on the size of the genomic workload.


      Webinar (2) Learning Objectives:

      1. Learn about Intel’s efforts in its Code Optimization and Scalable System Framework
      2. Learn how to build your genomics cluster using products from common hardware companies; size your genomics cluster to meet your needs;  expand your cluster as your need grows.
