The step toward personalized medicine– the IBM’s supercomputer, Blue Gene/Q chosen to support Polish biomedical centre

Publish date: 2013-04-09

At the beginning of April, a supercomputer, IBM Blue Gene/Q called Nostromo, was decided to be harnessed by the biggest Polish biomedical and biotechnological research initiative, namely Centre for Pre-Clinical Research and Technology. The main duty of the computer is to help scientists to investigate chronic diseases, which constitute a widespread problem for aging population.

Thanks to the application of the supercomputer able to analyse data gained from a great number of patients, faster diagnosis as well as development of innovative drugs against chronic diseases, as cancer, heart diseases, stroke or diabetes will be facilitated. The combination of impressing speed of operation of up to 209.7 trillion operations per second with special algorithms will enable recognition of so-called rare variants in human genome responsible for development of illnesses, like e.g. Alzheimer’s disease or Down syndrome. The new system will also help to perform big scale simulations in biomolecular modeling and neurobiology.

 

Professor Marek Niezgodka , the director of ICM said in a statement: "The process of developing and generating a new drug or treatment normally takes up to three years, and costs have nearly quadrupled in the past 15 years. With Nostromo, we expect to increase the simulation speed which will bring us much closer to the era of "personalized medicine," when preventative approaches can be tailored to a specific condition."

 

With Blue Gene supercomputer it will become possible to store and analyze so called Big Data from millions of people. In order to harness them in a most efficient way and to withdraw conclusions concerning genetic predispositions for diseases, this vast amount of medical data has to be analyzed together. Then, when a genome of a single patient has been sequenced and genetic factors for an illness detected, the application of appropriate, efficient treatment will be available. In conclusion, the new supercomputer will bring new possibilities for the Polish healthcare, making medicine more personalized and providing treatment tailored to a specific case.

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High monicaspiritualtemple@gmail.com anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here's his contact: monicaspiritualtemple@gmail.com or call him +2348134493948
