Genomic sequencing is one of the most vital biological tasks today because of its promise to (1) improve human health through precision medicine, (2) discover sustainable sources of energy, and (3) help us better understand our world. Our goal is to build an interdisciplinary community of biologists, computer and computational scientists to identify and work towards solving joint short- and long-term challenges in data and computations for genomic analytic pipelines. Many traditional high performance computing centers are learning to adapt to the diverse workload of genomic sequencing and many biologists are discovering the advantages that high performance computing can bring to their research. By sharing our diverse experiences and common concerns, we can reduce duplication and leverage our joint efforts to drive towards overall progress in this field. This workshop will help support the acceleration of scientific progress and innovation by spurring interdisciplinary understanding through human interaction.
