Intel to Collaborate with NextBio on Big Data

NextBio announced plans today for the use of Big Data technologies in genomics on Intel-based hardware and software platforms. The collaboration with Intel will further scale the NextBio platform to handle millions of genomes, enabling life science researchers and clinicians to effectively make discoveries and translate biological research into improved clinical medicine. Complex data requiring compute-intensive analysis needs not only Big Data open source, but a combination of hardware and software management optimizations to help deliver needed scale with a high ROI. Intel is working closely with NextBio to deliver this showcase reference to the Big Data community and life science industry.
