This August, customers will see a whole lot of activity around BaseSpace, Illumina's genomics cloud computing environment. If you haven't already, check out the BaseSpace blog for the latest news. In the first of pair of posts this week, Alex Dickinson, Senior Vice President of Cloud Genomics, breaks down the numbers behind the adoption of BaseSpace. Most impressive stats: the number of MiSeq runs that have been shared, and the increasing growth pattern in instruments uploading data.
In the second post, Jerome Chadel, User Experience design lead, walks us through the philosophy and methods behind making the BaseSpace user interface both useful and easy for biologists to use. Find out more about the design team's holistic approach to the user experience, how real customers were used in the design research, and some exciting features of the redesigned BaseSpace interface.
