The Dell HPC System for Life Sciences provides a complete, end-to-end genomic processing infrastructure architected to deliver high-throughput and fast turnaround of genomic workflows for a diverse range of fields including drug design, cancer research, agriculture, biofuels and forensics. 

This whitepaper describes the architectural changes and updates to the follow-on of HPC system for genomics v1.0, the v2.0. It explains the new features, demonstrates the benefits, and shows the improved performance. HPC system for genomics v2.0 is capable of processing up to 163 genomes per day while consuming 2 Kilowatt-hour (kWh) per genome. That is an almost 4.5x improvement from HPC system for genomics v1.0.
