Roadmap for Genomics Computing

Welcome to the Roadmap for Genomics Computing Workshop presented by the Sydney Informatics Hub, a Core Research Facility of the University of Sydney.

The University of Sydney are developing a 1-5 year infrastructure roadmap to enable excellence in genomics-based medical and life sciences research. This workshop showcases outstanding genomics research, current and future capabilities of local and national research facilities, and a panel discussion to engage with domain and infrastructure leaders. The event will follow with the drafting of a Roadmap for Genomics Computing that takes on board all the learnings of this event.

Our fantastic line up of speakers includes leaders in agriculture, wildlife conservation, public health, and precision medicine presenting innovation powered by advances in next-generation sequencing technology and accelerated computing and data and computing challenges faced. Hear about current local, state and national data and digital infrastructure capabilities and the vision for supporting the genomics revolution into the future. Engage with diverse and expert panelists on how we meet the big data and compute challenges of Genomics. Join us and be a part of establishing the University of Sydney’s roadmap for Genomics Computing.
