By unifying its DNA sequencing operations onto 2PB of the Isilon IQ 72000X, the JGI has centralized data access. With its leading-edge, highly data-intensive R&D work powered by a separate, Isilon IQ 5000S-SSD cluster, the JGI’s DNA sequencing operations have a unified and dedicated storage resource, eliminating data fragmentation and performance bottlenecks to help speed… [Read More]

“The JGI’s research is critical to reducing our nation’s dependency on foreign oil and replacing it with new, cleaner and more efficient energy resources,” said Sam Grocott, vice president of marketing, Isilon Systems. “This research exemplifies the term ‘mission-critical,’ requiring a storage solution with the highest levels of scalability, performance and reliability to ensure it… [Read More]
JGI ANNOUNCES 2010 COMMUNITY SEQUENCING PROJECTS – The US Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute announced that it will support 71 new sequencing projects to advance its bio-energy and climate research programs. The programs will involve whole-genome sequencing, single cell sequencing, resequencing of bacteria, and metagenomics of microbial communities, JGI said. The rest of the… [Read More]
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has selected 71 new genomic sequencing projects for its 2010 Community Sequencing Program (CSP)a targeted sampling of the planet’s biodiversity to be characterized for bioenergy, climate, and environmental applications. JGI’s Community Sequencing Program is the largest genomic sequencing effort in the world focused on nonmedical… [Read More]
