Lenovo, India research institute speed up cancer research via genetic analysis tool

A high-performance computing tool will address demanding genomics workloads.

India’s genome sequencing research institute, and technology firm, Lenovo, partnered to use a high-performance genetic analysis tool that will quicken cancer research.

Under the partnership, CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (CSIR-IGIB) will use Lenovo’s high-performance Genomics Optimization and Scalability Tool (GOAST) architecture which will resolve demanding genomic sequencing workloads and help researchers find faster insights.

GOAST will back research initiatives such as those focused on finding potential genetic roots of cancer. 

“For example, researchers can compare cancer genomes against a standard reference genome to identify potential germline mutations (passed directly from a parent to a child) that can trigger or advance cancer development in humans,” read the statement.
