“This is a talk about a startup journey leading to PetaGene. Genomic data is rapidly growing – in 2018 alone, there will be more data generated from next generation sequencers (NGS) than all the videos on YouTube put together. PetaGene addresses these challenges by making genomics data smaller, faster and better.”

Speaker bio: Dr Dan Greenfield is the CEO of PetaGene Ltd. He has spent many years working on ground breaking products in Silicon Valley in parallel computing and advanced networking. He has a Masters in Bioinformatics and his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge was awarded the 2011 CHPC /BCS Prize for the top Computer Science PhD dissertation in the UK. Working in collaboration Dr Stegle’s group at EMBL -EBI, Dr Greenfield guided the development of PetaGene’s technology.
