Hitachi sponsors CRSS research in genomic data storage
November 4, 2013
Two areas of expertise at UC Santa Cruz—genomics and data storage—are brought together under a new research agreement sponsored by Hitachi. The agreement provides funding for cancer genomics research and the development of a
Genomics Medicine Integrated System, a pilot information system for evaluating clinical and genomic data from cancer clinical trials.
In addition to initial research funding, Hitachi has provided a petabyte-capacity data storage system from Hitachi Data Systems Corp., making a total of more than $1 million in support for the project. UCSC researchers are using the storage system to manage cancer genomics data and study ways to improve the storage and processing of large amounts of genomic data.
