Canadian Bioinformatics Workshop: Summer 2020
Bioinformatics for Cancer Genomics

Cancer research has rapidly embraced high throughput technologies and Cloud computing into its research. Large amounts of data are being created from various microarray, tissue array, and next generation sequencing platforms. Dedicated compute clouds such as the Cancer Genome Collaboratory [http://cancercollaboratory.org/] facilitate complex analyses on big cancer data sets from projects hosting their data in the Cloud, such as the ICGC and PCAWG. Now more than ever, having the informatic skills and knowledge of available bioinformatic resources specific to cancer and how to access and use available data sets in the Cloud is critical.
