Quantifying The Dynamics of Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing

smarr

The human body is host to 100 trillion microorganisms, ten times the number of cells in the human body, and these microbes contain 100 times the number of DNA genes that our human DNA does. UC San Diego CSE Professor, Larry Smarr, discusses how data from these trillions of DNA bases are fed into supercomputers, resulting in innovative scalable visualization systems that allow for the examination of patterns that can be used to suggest new hypotheses for clinical application.

HPC Life Sciences

The term next generation sequencing (NGS) is really a misnomer. NGS implies a single methodology, but the fact is that over the past 10 to 15 years there have been multiple generations and the end is nowhere in sight. Technological advances in the field are continuing to emerge at a record setting pace.
