SGI Servers and Storage Systems Fuel Faster Time to Discovery for
Researchers Seeking Causes and Cures of Disease
BOSTON, April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-IT WORLD CONFERENCE AND EXPO 2008, Booth 306/308 -- As scientists seek to accelerate sequencing genomes of varied arrays of organisms from fish parasites to cancer cells in an effort to determine causes and cures of diseases that plague mankind, breakthrough technology from SGI (Nasdaq: SGIC) is powering research in genome centers around the world. Leading institutions, including the Translational Genomics Research Institute in Phoenix, Ariz., the Malaysia Genome Institute in Selangor and the China National Human Genome Center in Shanghai, have turned to SGI(R) high-performance computing and storage solutions to create an optimal workflow for faster time to discovery.
"Exciting combinations of SGI technology enable bioscientists to achieve genome query results faster," said Deepak Thakkar, Ph.D., Higher Education and Research Segment Manager, SGI. "International genome centers, each with unique computational needs and demands, have turned to SGI for their high performance compute, scalable storage and acceleration technology needs. Whether using an SGI cluster to run many iterations of a search or handling massive data sets on our powerful servers, bioscientists rely on SGI delivering faster time to insight."

Discovering the differences and changes within the genome that trigger
disease is a priority for The Translational Genomics Research Institute
(TGen). TGen deploys technology from SGI to more quickly and efficiently
analyze molecular profile data sets in their search for cancer cures. I
