Genetic information is a perfect example of big data – a single sequencer can generate terabytes of data per week. How can researchers use it to speed the development of personalized medicine that promises to optimize health outcomes based on genetic information for each patient? By applying high-performance analytics.
High-performance analytics offer the possibility to analyze what treatment options are best for a particular patient based on their personal genetic makeup, rather than just comparisons to other patients similar to them. The ability to analyze big data extremely quickly means high-performance analytics could move personalized medicine research from the lab to the clinic so it could be used to drive individual treatments.
