Success Stories in Personalized Medicine

Personalized medicine

Universities and hospitals like TGen and NMTRC are seeing an entirely new reality in patient care leveraging HPC clusters. Here are some success stories on on advances in personalized medicine.

Open Computing Benefits Many Industry Segments

open-compute-project

The Open Compute Project is a way for organization to increase computing power while lowering associated costs with hyper-scale computing. This article is the 4th in a series from insideHPC that showcases the benefits of open computing to specific industries.

HPC Helps Solve Challenges of Personalized Medicine

Genomic Sequencing

A number of challenges exist for both the wider adoption of technologies that can impede personalized medicine workflows and the implementation of such systems. Learn more on how companies like Dell and Intel are delivering complete integrated genomic processing infrastructure.

SGI Solutions for Next Generation Sequencing

SGI UV 2000

The SGI UV system allows computational biologists to take a different, far more effective approach to dealing with the huge data sets generated by contemporary Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and analytic applications.

Open Compute Solutions

HPC Guide to Open Computing - Thumb

The Open Compute Project partners with leading CPU vendors such as Intel, AMD and ARM-based vendors to create reference designs that may be used by board and system vendors. These designs are bare-bones systems, with expansion options designed in for other types of I/O and storage. The reference design from Intel (REF) is 6.5 inches wide and 20 inches deep. These dimensions allow for three servers to be placed side by side in a newly designed Open Compute rack, increasing density.

Benefits HPC Brings to Genomics

HPC Life Sciences

Besides the obvious benefits to individuals, who will receive more targeted diagnosis and treatment, organizations that implement or contribute to personalized medicine can expect a number of benefits.

Removing Bottlenecks in Next Generation Sequencing

Genomic Sequencing

This is the 4th installment of a 6 article series on the trends and technologies impacting the application of HPC in Life Sciences. Here we explore how companies like SGI and Intel address computational and storage problems inherent in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) applications.

InsideHPC Guide to Genomics

Guide to Genomics Sm

Processing complex genomic data sets requires massive compute power, storage and network capabilities. Getting the balance right is critical to success. The insideHPC Guide to Genomics looks at the benefits, challenges of applying HPC to Genomics as well as many success stories.

Open Computing Drives Innovation and Efficiency

open-compute-project

The Open Compute Project Foundation was created to design the most efficient server, storage and related designs for the next generation of data centers in an open and collaborative development model. By sharing designs that maximize density, minimize power consumption and deliver expected performance, completely new computing environments can be developed, free from the limitations of legacy thinking.

Going from the Lab to the Data Center

Genomic Sequencing

In the late 1980s, genomic sequencing began to shift from wet lab work to a computationally intensive science; by end of the 1990s this trend was in full swing. The application of computer science and high performance computing (HPC) to these biological problems became the normal mode of operation for many molecular biologists.
