Scientists are leveraging cloud services provided by Google and other
companies to streamline and share massive amounts of data generated by
sequencing the human genome. The hope is that the increased power and speed
of cloud services will accelerate research and increase opportunities for
advances in medicine and other fields.

*For example, a thousand genomes of people who fall within the autism
spectrum were uploaded to Google’s servers Monday as part of a new
project sponsored by the nonprofit Autism Speaks.*
