Coriell Institute Teams With IBM to Advance Personalized Medicine
Date:7/15/2011

, Coriell is exploring the clinical utility of this personalized approach to medicine.  The breadth of data output created by our research introduced new challenges to analyze and store this information," Megill added. "IBM is enabling Coriell to more effectively gather and analyze this data for our research."

Overall storage costs reduced by more than 30 percent

Coriell needed to address the challenge of supporting data collections generated from more than two million ampules of cells, one million vials of DNA, and hundreds of thousands of other biomaterials.   In addition, the Coriell Personalized Medicine Collaborative Research Study – which captures an individual's genetic differences to better understand causes for diseases – created an additional data challenge to the Institute.  Each participant in the study is genotyped using an array-based technology producing more than two million points of data, equaling approximately 1.5 GB of information per person.  With a target goal of 100,000 participants for the study, Coriell faced a massive information storage demand that was simply too cost prohibitive using legacy storage platforms.

Coriell turned to IBM and IBM Business Partner Mainline to help drive the organization's technology transformation to help manage the millions of biological samples and associated data.  The use of  IBM storage system at Coriell scales more cost effectively than traditional disk storage and, as a result of using  IBM's low-cost storage technology, Coriell has reduced its information storage costs by 30 percent.  

In order to meet the challenges of a biobanking center that supports national and international scientific research, Coriell also looked to IBM to provide a process tracking system to quickly and easily adapt to the nuances of such a diverse biological collection.
