Our Charity

Global Windows Azure Boot Camp event will help advance Diabetes Research by hosting a globally distributed lab in which attendees of the event will deploy virtual machines in Windows Azure which will help analyze data needed for this research. We’re aiming at discovering how our body’s serum protein glycosylation works. The research is led by Richard D. Smith in the Biological Sciences Division at Pacific Northwest National lab (PNNL) in collaboration with Minnie M. Sarwal and Tara K. Sigdel at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute. The Camp will use GlyQ-IQ software, developed to run in a massively multicore parallel deployment.
