De-mystifying the (NIH) Commons

Large-scale efforts are underway at NIH to tackle hurdles associated with accessing and utilizing Big Data. Making public data, especially large commonly used data sets, easily accessible in the cloud will reduce the burden and cost of individual investigators independently moving and storing data, enable the ability to compute against data sets, and permit new and novel uses across data sets. The (NIH) Commons was created as a platform to make this possible. It is … Read More
