insideHPC Dell Special Report – HPC and AI for the Era of Genomics

This white paper sponsored by Dell Technologies, takes a deep dive into HPC and AI for life sciences in the era of genomics. 2020 will be remembered for the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19. While infection rates are growing exponentially, the race is on to find a treatment, vaccine, or cure. Governments and private  organizations are teaming together to understand the basic biology of the virus, its genetic code, to find  what can stop it.

NVIDIA Gives COVID-19 Researchers Free Access Genome-sequencing software for GPUs

NVIDIA is offering COVID-19 Researchers free access to Parabricks genome-sequencing software for GPUs. “Starting today, NVIDIA will provide a free 90-day license to Parabricks to any researcher in the worldwide effort to fight the novel coronavirus. Based on the well-known Genome Analysis Toolkit, Parabricks uses GPUs to accelerate by as much as 50x the analysis of sequence data. We recognize this pandemic is evolving, so we’ll monitor the situation and extend the offer as needed.”

Podcast: Intel Select Solutions for Genomic Analytics at the Broad Institute

In this Conversations in the Cloud podcast, Geraldine Van der Auwera from the Broad Institute describes how her organization leverages Intel Select Solutions for Genomics Analytics. “Genomics analysis creates enormous amounts of data to process, and together they developed Intel Select Solutions for Genomics Analytics. Geraldine finds value in Select Solutions because the provided configurations are tailored for genomics workloads. They are verified by Intel, customized for complicated genomics pipelines, and ready to work right out of the box. The result is end-to-end processing that’s faster and won’t create a backlog.”

Compendium of articles published on Numerical Algorithms for HPC Science

The Royal Society Publishing has recently released a special compendium of articles based on a recent scientific discussion meeting with HPC Industry thought leaders. “This issue contains contributions from those who develop and implement numerical algorithms and software libraries – numerical analysts, computer scientists, and high-performance computing researchers – with those who use them in some of today’s most challenging applications.”

Researchers transmit genome sequence using quantum cryptography

Tohoku University Medical Megabank Organisation (ToMMo) has demonstrated the world’s first quantum cryptography transmission of whole-genome sequence data in collaboration with Toshiba. The transmission exceeded several hundred gigabytes demonstrating that quantum encryption technology is now capable of large-capacity data transmission, opening up practical applications in genomic medicine and research.

Lifebit Launches Federated Genomics Cloud Operating System for Accelerated Discovery

Lifebit CloudOS solves the major barrier faced by the genomics sector: data is often siloed and distributed, inaccessible for multiple parties to analyze. Without the ability to perform analyses across this distributed data the industry is stalled, impeding critical progress in precision medicine and life sciences. “Because it is completely agnostic to the customer’s HPC and cloud infrastructure, workflows and data, Lifebit CloudOS is unlike any other genomics platforms in that it sits natively on one’s cloud/HPC and brings computation to the data instead of the other way around.”

Lenovo and Intel Power Data-Intensive Science at the Flatiron Institute

Today Lenovo and Intel revealed how their collaboration on joint technology solutions that accelerate the convergence of HPC and AI are helping scientists at the Flatiron Institute solve scientific challenges in entirely new ways. “Seeing some of the greatest minds rely upon our technology to discover answers for some of humanity’s most pressing questions is rewarding. But pushing the boundaries of HPC and AI capabilities even further so more people can benefit is what drives us.”
