An expert’s view: Is cloud computing a feasible computational resource for biomedical researchers?

In this video Dr. Tsute (George) Chen talks about cloud computing for biomedical researchers.

To continue on the topic of computational resources, we invite Dr. Tsute (George) Chen to our series ‘An expert’s view’.

Dr. Chen is an expert microbiologist and bioinformatician who has led The Forsyth Institute’s effort to build and maintain the first human body site microbiome database – the ‘Human Oral Microbiome Database’ (HOMD). Over the past decade, the tools and data in the HOMD have been used by scientists worldwide for studying human oral microorganisms. Likewise, Dr. Chen works on the interface of ‘multi-omics’ aspects of microbiology, including genomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics. It is our pleasure to welcome Dr. Chen to talk about cloud computing for biomedical researchers.
