Weekly Spotlight - Microsoft Cloud accelerating Cancer Research
“Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more” (Satya Nadella)
Technology is made to have a great impact on humanity’s progress, and Microsoft’s cloud accelerating Cancer Research embodied this principle.
Check this great video where Wu Feng, Computer Science Professor at Virginia Tech, guides us through the extraordinary impact of the Cloud to accelerate Cancer Research. It empowers cancer researchers by considerably decreasing the time to sequence and analyse a genome (an organism’s complete set of genetic instructions, made up of DNA) and dropping the cost of such a work from 95 million dollars to 6,000 dollars!
