Eagle CTO, speaking at AWS Cloud Computing And Life Sciences Event

Cloud Computing, Life Sciences and Genomics

Glenn Proctor, Eagle's CTO, will be speaking at Amazon Web Services' (AWS) conference on Cloud Computing and Life Sciences scheduled for 1st July 2015 at the Homerton Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK.

Glenn will be speaking about: Genomics in the Cloud: How Eagle Built a Business on AWS

"Science is unlocking the complexity of biological systems at an increasing rate. In almost every biological field, large-scale compute resources are required. Previously these were the exclusive preserve of large companies and universities, however the advent of cloud computing, and AWS in particular has enabled companies like Eagle to emerge and become leaders in the field, despite having no in-house compute resource.

In this talk, I will describe how Eagle has done this over the seven years since we were founded, and describe the scientific objectives, implementation and results of our work with clients in industries as diverse as healthcare, research, consumer goods and agricultural technology."

As Chief Technical Officer, Glenn is responsible for managing and improving Eagle’s systems to best support customers. During Glenn’s tenure at Eagle, he has set the technological direction of the company and spearheaded the implementation of the company’s flagship software product: eaglecore, as well as building and leading the teams which deliver the company's products and services. Glenn oversees Eagle’s software development and works with leading customers to define, implement and deliver solutions. Glenn previously led the software development of Ensembl at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI). Prior to that, Glenn explored business applications in areas as diverse as artificial life technologies, mobile phone capacity planning and games.

Registration to the AWS Cloud Computing and Life Sciences event is free to attend.
