The Genome Analysis Center Selects Convey to Support Next-Generation Sequencing
Date:1/29/2013

Richardson, TX (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

Convey Computer today announced that The Genome Analysis Center (TGAC), one of seven institutes that receives strategic funding from the U.K.’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), has deployed two Convey HC-1ex hybrid-core systems for advanced genomics research. TGAC, based in the U.K., is an aggressive adopter of advanced sequencing and IT technology.

The two Convey HC-1ex systems are the latest addition to TGAC’s powerful computing infrastructure. By installing hybrid-core Convey HC-1ex systems, TGAC expanded their cluster and ccNUMA-based HPC environment to include leading edge heterogeneous computing capabilities.

“We need to analyze data quickly and precisely, which takes time on clusters,” explained Dr. Mario Caccamo, Deputy Director of TGAC. “We offloaded some of our sequence alignment demand to the Convey hybrid-core systems, because they can handle the alignment algorithms much more efficiently. Using the Convey systems, we are seeing up to 15x acceleration on our computationally intense BWA(1) runs.”

TGAC was part of an international team that recently demonstrated next-generation sequencing could be used effectively to fine map genes in polyploidy wheat. TGAC will leverage Convey’s architecture to accelerate computationally challenging jobs, such as resequencing alignment for wheat and other polyploidy species.

“The initial performance jump is a major improvement,” continued Dr. Caccamo. “We expect to achieve even better performance as we gain experience using the Convey platform.”
