Exploring Computational Biology as a Service, in the Cloud

This is an invitation to join us in April for the 3rd round of the open and free UberCloud CompBio Experiment, applying the cloud computing services model to Computational Biology.

This open, humanitarian, and collaborative Experiment is making computing resources available as a service, for everybody, on demand, at your fingertip, by exploring the end-to-end process of accessing and using remote computing resources as a service, and learning how to resolve the many roadblocks.

Now, for round 3 starting in April with so far 370 organizations worldwide, we invite industry end-users, software providers, HPC and computational bio experts, and computing resource providers, to join the experiment. For every end-user application we are building a small expert and resource team to collaboratively explore the end-to-end process of remote Computational Biology as a Service, hands on, in 22 well-defined, well-guided, easy steps.
