On April 14, 2013, the world celebrated the 10th anniversary of the United States led Human Genome Project researching the estimated 20-25,000 human genes that make up human DNA. Australia is also active in genomics research, and the NeCTAR funded Genomics Virtual Laboratory is connecting Australian Genome researchers with datasets, analysis tools and computational infrastructure. The laboratory recently saw a spike in use.

Using cloud technology to manage experiments
Dr Shelley Wickham is a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School in the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Working in Associate Professor William Shih’s lab, the entire lab uses an open-source electronic lab book which is hosted on the Amazon cloud to manage their computational and wet lab experiments.
This cloud hosted lab book gives them lots of advantages, like being able to access and edit their lab records anywhere and anytime, browse the pages and notes of their lab workmates, as well as easily accessing shared, communal reference information.
