Supercomputer Analyzes 240 Full Genomes in Two Days


It will probably take us several weeks with all of your brains put together to analyze 1 very small genome. The technology is changing fast.  Sequencing is getting faster and cheaper, but what about the time and expense of analyzing?  Data doesn’t mean much if it is just sitting on the desktop.

Your generation will be analyzing and utilizing genome sequences more and more for diagnostics.  Computers will be doing the analysis.  Who will decide what to do with the results? What do you think?
