As new sequencing platforms are capable of generating gigabytes of data in a single sequence run – leading to terabytes of data in an experiment; data storage, transfer, and analysis will unquestionably be the rate limiting steps in turning the new sequence data into knowledge. CHI’s Inaugural Next-Generation Sequencing Data Analysis convenes engineers who are developing the sequencing platforms, biological researchers who are designing and running the experiments, biosatiations who are analyzing and interpreting the data, and software developers who are managing and storing the data. Each specialty provides perspectives and must be integrated into a cohesive, comprehensive team to decipher the sequencing data deluge.
