"...Today we’re announcing that we are joining the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a partner on the STRIDES (Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation, and Sustainability) Initiative to bring the power of Google Cloud to biomedical research. As part of this agreement, we’ll make some of the most important NIH-funded datasets available to users with appropriate privacy controls. To simplify access to these datasets, we’ll integrate researcher authentication and authorization mechanisms with Google Cloud credentials. And we’re working with the Global Alliance for Genomics & Health and the BioCompute Consortium to support industry standards for data access, discovery, and cloud computation. In addition to this partnership, we’re continuing to develop a suite of open source tools, such as Variant Transforms, to structure and integrate biomedical datasets using BigQuery, our highly-scalable managed data warehouse solution...."
