The Accelerated Genomics CloudPromotion
Convey and Nimbix are giving away $25,000 of cloud processing for genomics applications.
Receive up to $1,000 of bioinformatics analysis runtime
To give researchers access to world-class HPC resources and to show them that heterogeneous cloud computing is extremely powerful, yet simple and easy to use, Convey and Nimbix are offering qualified applicants free runtime. Top applicants may receive up to $1000 worth of runtime. Remaining qualified applicants will receive $500 worth. First awards will be granted as soon as the application review process allows. The promotion will end July 1 or once all funding has been awarded. Therefore, interested participants are encouraged to apply quickly by registering.
The combination of heterogeneous computing and cloud computing is an ideal solution for the high performance computing demands in life sciences. Budget constraints are limiting access to necessary compute resources at the very time when the explosive growth in life sciences data makes access increasingly desirable.
The Convey-Nimbix cloud genomics promotion launched on April 30, 2013 and ends July 1, 2013, or once all funding has been awarded.
Awards will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis for qualified applicants in the Life Sciences community. Applicants must register to apply by completing the registration form. Commercial, governmental, and academic researchers are all welcome and encouraged to participate. Processing time will be made available to award winners immediately upon award notification.
Pre-staged workflows focused on reference mapping with the popular BWA aligner are available and provide the fastest way to get started, but processing time may be used for other analysis including de novo assembly, functional annotation, variant analysis and RNA expression profiling. Participants will have access to the full Convey Bioinformatics Suite, as well as third-party applications.
