Genomics Cancer Research and Precision Medicine with ASU and Hortonworks

Recorded on June 1st, 2016

Data architects and researchers at Arizona State University worked with Hortonworks to build a genomics data lake that integrates Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP™) with Apache Spark™ within a high performance compute environment. ASU researchers now use HDP to store and process genomics data on thousands of individuals, to better understand how each variant in a genome might influence cancer risks and response to treatments.

Join the webinar to hear from the architect who built the genomics data lake and the researcher who uses it to discover insights that may shed light on innovative approaches to understanding and treating cancer.
