Managing a Storm of Data in Genetic Research

See our infographic to find out how much data storage scientists need as they pursue medical breakthroughs.


We recently talked with data scientists about the work they do, which includes the very practical matter of data storage. What does it take to store data from a single experiment using RNA sequencing? What about millions of sequenced human genomes? Measured in laptops, it's quite a lot.
