DATA MANAGEMENT AND STORAGE: THE NEXT HURDLE FOR NGS*

The explosion in demand for next-generation sequencing platforms brings with it a monumental challenge for any research group, organization or facility in setting up the pipeline and infrastructure to handle and manage the torrent of data about to be unleashed. These challenges are only intensifying as labs audition and integrate new platforms, expand capacity, and try to balance a growing array of projects, users and applications.

This introductory short course, co-organized by The BioTeam and CHI, is intended to provide in-depth, interactive guidance on the essential do’s and don’ts in coping with the prodigious volumes of data produced in next-generation sequencing. This course will focus on:

  • Building the IT infrastructure, software and LIMS to handle sequencing data
  • Strategies for data storage, quality control and analysis
  • Needs, design, and maintenance for massive storage and back-up
  • Methods for archiving and managing the life cycle of data
  • Cost control

Short Course Instructors:

Chris Dagdigian, Founding Partner and Director of Technology, BioTeam, Inc.

Jacob Farmer, Chief Technology Officer, Cambridge Computer
Matthew Trunnell, Manager, Research Computing, Broad Institute 


Course participants are encouraged to share their challenges and bring specific data storage requirements. Ample time will be given for interactive discussion. This collegial atmosphere will encourage productivity from your NGS investment.  This course is designed for researchers who have made a NGS platform purchase(s) or are considering one in the near future.
