A research team at Department of Biological and Medical Sciences, Oxford Brookes University, conducts research on how animals can regenerate parts of their bodies after injury. The project focuses on the regenerative power of the cells of different species of worms, using single-cell sequencing techniques.
The team’s research techniques involve extremely large files of single-cell sequencing data, from which they will then extract the required information. Before moving to the cloud, they encountered bottlenecks in terms of access to resources that other scientists wanted to use at the same time. With vouchers from OCRE for the CloudSigma platform, the researchers are able to spin up multiple instances simultaneously, helping them solve the problem in a really efficient way.
