Students Capitalize on Computational Genomics Research Using AWS

Amazon Web Services at Illinois gives students and faculty the opportunity to explore and optimize data analysis.

Thanks to the campus contract between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, both faculty and student researchers have access to Amazon’s cloud computing platform, and they’re already doing amazing things.

Katherine Kendig, a research coordinator and partner with Public Affairs at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), reports that students are capitalizing on the partnership to optimize data analysis in computational genomics research.
