    Hardware: Medical Xpress: Supercomputer dramatically accelerates rapid genome analysis
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Friday, February 21, 2014



    Although the time and cost of sequencing an entire human genome has plummeted, analyzing the resulting three billion base pairs of genetic information from a single genome can take many months.

    In the journal Bioinformatics, however, a University of Chicago-based team – working with Beagle, one of the world's fastest supercomputers devoted to life sciences – reports that genome analysis can be radically accelerated. This computer, based at Argonne National Laboratory, is able to analyze 240 full genomes in about two days.
