Dell's Dr. Glen Otero sits down with Rich Brueckner of insideHPC to dive deeper into into Research Computing. Glen outlines the importance of the HPC Community coming together at events like SC12, to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the industry. At SC12, Dell sponsored a Birds of a Feather (BOF) session on Genomics Research and Personalized Medicine. Panel participants included Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI), the Translational Genomics Institute (TGEN), and Dell. The discussions included everything from code optimizations, to making personalized medicine a reality for everyone.
Glen uses an example from TGEN, where pediatric cancer is being treated using genome sequencing. The idea of personalized medicine makes so much sense when you think about it - each individual is different, therefore the treatment and medicine should be unique as well.
