DKFZ Installs Convey Hybrid-core Computers to Speed Next-Generation Sequencing
Date:8/15/2013

The Heidelberg DKFZ facility currently processes 5 terabytes of data per day conducting NGS analysis. Prior to the Convey installation, processing massive amounts of data in a timely fashion was a challenge for DKFZ—both from a resource and time perspective.

One of the most time-consuming steps of analyzing a patient’s genome involves using the Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA)–the preferred algorithm for fast, accurate alignment to a reference genome of the short reads typical of high-throughput sequencers (HTS). BWA was taking up to 80% of CPU time in the data center’s pipeline.

“Accelerating this portion of our pipeline allows us to get answers substantially faster,” noted Brors. “In addition, saving processing time reduces power consumption and cooling–which is a huge advantage in saving money and a step forward in our commitment to pursue green technologies.”

This DKFZ effort is part of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) to study tumors from more than fifty types of cancers. Their goal is to develop better ways of diagnosing, treating and preventing many types of cancer. The scientists at DKFZ are currently participating in three different ICGC cancer research projects: pediatric brain tumors, malignant lymphoma, and prostate cancer. Their research focuses on mapping how cancer changes the genomes of cells and causes mutations within normal biological pathways.
