After nearly 30 years, the Human genome is now being used in the clinical space. The researchers and engineers of The Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine (CPGM) at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri use HPC to decipher the infant’s genome to rapidly look for genetic markers of disease to make a dramatic impact on the lives of children. CPGM is using HPC to push the turnaround time for this life saving application to just 50 hours.
