The computer technology firms will provide BGI Genomics with computational equipment and expertise to support its studies into the genomics of the virus.

Omics Data Automation, founded by creators of the Intel-OHSU Collaborative Cancer Cloud, has also created an open-source community for users of the Broad's GenomicsDB.

The partners will develop and implement bioinformatics tools, pipelines, and techniques to improve molecular profiling for research and clinical oncology.

Intel is ending its sponsorship of the International Science and Engineering Fair, the New York Times reports.

UCSF said that the healthcare computing platform will use deep learning to analyze EHR, omics, wearables, and IoT sensor data. 

The five-year collaboration will focus on building, optimizing, and sharing tools and resources that will help scientists process and use genomic data.

Over five years, the partners will work on optimizing the GATK and other Broad-developed solutions as well as methods for analyzing distributed datasets.

Proponents believe the Million European Genomes Alliance will spur research, stimulate the life sciences economy, and ultimately improve clinical care.

The partners have implemented Edico's Dragen on one of IBM's Power Systems servers. Edico has also made the Broad Institute's GATK available on Dragen.
