Cloud computing contributes to cancer research

PCAWG, the largest cancer research consortium in the world, has set itself the task of improving our understanding of genetic mutations in tumors. A new study by the international research group, to which researchers in BIFOLD senior researcher Dr. Roland Schwarz’ group at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) substantially contributed, is now being published in the journal Nature.
