Guy Cochrane's Biography

Guy Cochrane, Team Leader, European Bioinformatics Institute

Dr. Guy Cochrane is the head of the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA; The ENA provides a comprehensive repository for public nucleotide sequence data, attracting users from a multitude of research disciplines and serving as underlying data infrastructure for numerous bioinformatics services. Under Dr. Cochrane, the team has launched important new services, such as the Sequence Read Archive for raw data from next generation sequencing platforms and the CRAMtools sequence data compression platform ( In addition to the management of the twenty-strong team of biological curators, bioinformaticians and software engineers, he contributes editorial work to a number of journals and meetings and has been involved in standardisation activities in many areas of bioinformatics. He received his PhD in cancer cell and molecular biology from the University of East Anglia in 1999 and carried out post-doctoral work in the molecular biology of photoreception at Cambridge University prior to joining EBI.

In the talk, I will detail the needs for compression of raw NGS data and will describe the CRAM concept for serving these needs. Finally, I will outline approaches that apply compression differentially across the growing body of NGS data.
