From Genomics to Life Sciences
For life sciences and academic research institutions
Bioinformaticians, build what you want, not just what you need, using open standards. Researchers, speed up your research, ask new questions, and share data in a secure online environment. IT professionals, rest easy knowing you have the resources you need to meet computational demand, secure data, and ensure system reliability.
Growing ecosystem of partners
Google Cloud is at the heart of several life science platforms so you can focus on your work and leave the rest to the experts, including platform, service, and support partners.
Data sharing that makes sense
Your data is valuable to the life sciences community. With Google Cloud, you can better manage access and usage of your data by hosting it in a storage bucket where operations, network, and retrieval costs are easily billed to your clients.
Information security and compliance
Google Cloud infrastructure provides reliable information security designed to meet or exceed the requirements of HIPAA and protected health information. Covered by our HIPAA Business Associates Agreement and available via FedRAMP ATO for the National Cancer Institute Cancer Cloud Pilots.
From raw data to robust analysis with Variant Transforms
Variant Transforms is an open source tool for loading and transforming raw VCF data for use in advanced analytics. Use Variant Transforms to load massive amounts of raw VCF data, validate it for inconsistencies, and then transform it into BigQuery for access to ML and powerful analysis.
Google Cloud’s Healthcare and Life Sciences team has optimized the most popular methods—like GATK, DeepVariant, and Sentieon—to run on Google Cloud.
Flexible machine sizes
Take advantage of Compute Engine, our infrastructure as a service (IaaS), to run large-scale workloads on virtual machines and pay only for what you use.
Built for batch processing
Preemptible VMs for affordable batch processing on fault-tolerant workloads to save you time and money.
Fully integrated with Google Cloud
Experience the power of Google Cloud’s infrastructure with fast virtual machines, scalable storage, serverless data warehouses, and fully managed databases with Google Cloud integration with tools like Cloud Spanner and BigQuery.
Open and interoperable
Use the tools and workflows you already know and enjoy support for open industry standards like Global Alliance for Genomics and Health.
Ready for AI/ML
Enrich your data with public datasets and analytics from across Google and Google Cloud.
Cloud Life Sciences in action
"Google Cloud gives us the infrastructure to scale and quickly process a huge amount of data. No other cloud provider comes close."
