BigQuery for Genomics by Felipe Hoffa at Google

How big is the human genome? What tools can be used to manage and understand it?

It turns out that the same SQL powers that Google BigQuery makes available for general usage can be applied to genomics. In this session we'll introduce the basics of managing genomes with our favorite big data tools, drawing parallels with more traditional use cases like analyzing view logs.


  • The same SQL constructs that help us understand the world, can help us understand the basic fabrics of life.
  • Live demoes will highlight how we can leverage the latest in Google tools and services to accelerate data insights, bringing them from batch to real interactive time.
