Customer Snapshot: Visual Genomics at the University of Calgary

A new customer snapshot has been posted on the Sun Center of Excellence for Visual Genomics at the University of Calgary. This non-profit organization that is advancing technology for computational biology based on Sun solutions. It helps researchers in many ways, including identifying specific gene sequences and their functions, and by creating an advanced three-dimensional visual model of the human body that can be studied.
“Our applications need to push the edge of bioinformatics research while we address practical concerns like performance, data availability and a limited IT staff. Sun technology has been extremely stable and very flexible, which makes our job of advancing scientific research much easier.” — Dr. Christoph Sensen, Director, Sun Center of Excellence for Visual Genomics of the University of Calgary Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
