Charles Schmitt (Renaissance Computing Institute)
Your DNA, written out as a string of G, A, T, and C, is about three and half gigabytes long. That string is about 99.9% identical to an arbitrary Reference Genome. Practically all of those differences are harmless, but a a tiny fraction can cause disease, contribute to disease, or just change how your body reacts to drugs. We're using Hadoop to find the variants that actually matter. Read more.
