GENyO expands analytic capacity for precision medicine

At a glance

GENyO expands analytic capacity to accelerate strategically important research that can help pharma companies create new treatments and support the Andalusian Department of Health’s drive to bring precision medicine to the region’s 9 million citizens.

Outcomes

Researchers enjoy increased performance, scalability, and reliability. They have the flexibility to run diverse projects, including many that involve sophisticated analysis of heterogeneous data sets.

This finer-grained diagnostic capability can help pharma companies choose the best treatments for each patient and develop new treatments, and it is particularly valuable for people suffering from less common difficult-to-diagnose autoimmune diseases. The progress in this area is tremendously exciting.

A growing need for advanced analytics

A multidisciplinary research institute focused on the genetic basis of human diseases, GENyO needs scalable, high-performance computing resources to turn clinical and genomic data into scientific insights that ultimately improve human health. Its small cluster and individual workstations were swamped by growing demand.

Atos solution

GENyO deployed an Atos BullSequana X blade system, with each node powered by Intel® Xeon® processor. The system provides over 11 teraflops of computing power and 2.25 terabytes of RAM.

The solution has been deployed under the umbrella of the Atos HPC, AI and Quantum Life Sciences Center of Excellence (LSCoE), the realization of Atos global strategy to bring advanced computing technologies closer to life sciences projects with the goal of discovering fresh, innovative solutions.
