Microsoft Cloud Is Accelerating Cancer Research, Radically Reduces The Time It Takes To Sequence A Genome

In the computer science department at Virginia Tech, Professor Wu Feng realized that we can use computing and the cloud to empower cancer researchers working towards a cure. Genome sequencing used to take 2-3 weeks; today scientists can do one hundred genomes in a single day. Thanks to Microsoft Cloud and the advancements in distributed computing. By taking what’s happening in a lab and digitizing it, Feng is helping to accelerate discovery and progress toward Cancer cure research.
