SLIM Technology is a lightning-fast, memory-efficient "disruptive" technology that is not only the enabling technology for the entire discipline of personalized medicine but is also a unique, powerful research tool for one of the fastest growing research fields. Cartesian Gridspeed's SLIM Search opens new doors for research through a revolutionary advancement in the speed of information processing for genomic research. SLIM Search delivers greater speed performing up to 10,000 times faster than a fully optimized BLAST, which is a standard tool of the industry. SLIM Search can assemble a human genome in half a day on a desktop workstation instead of months on a multi-million dollar computer cluster using BLAST. SLIM Search can deliver daily updates of an orthogonal-comparison, comparative-genomics database of every known gene on a single PC -- which might only be possible yearly on a hundred-node Linux cluster running BLAST. In a typical genomics production environment, SLIM can deliver throughput improvements of 100 to 3000 times greater with equal or better sensitivity. These types of benefits are revolutionary in bio-informatics.
