The Broad Institute

The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard is a research organization that convenes a community of researchers from across many disciplines and partner institutions—MIT, Harvard, and Harvard-affiliated hospitals.

The Broad institute accelerated biomedical research and improved human health requiring diversity of all kinds in our community—in education, training, background, perspectives, interests, and identity—because it expands our creativity in how we approach problems and find solutions. Broad aims to ensure that the benefits of genomic medicine are shared by all.

The Broad Institute could not analyze more than 5,000 genomes at a time due to database constraints.

ODA solved the challenge with a GenomicsDB, and array-based solution that scales to millions of genomes and can be hosted on the cloud. GenomicsDB is open-source and fully integrated into Broad’s GATK pipeline.
