Beagle - super computer for medical purposes!
For analysis of the human genome required to spend a large amount of calculations, in recent times the processing speed of all base pairs of genes increased, but even in our time to process the 3.2 billion base pairs is not an easy task, for such work just fine big super computer and then for him it will take about a month of continuous operation.
Analysis of the human genome is needed in different medical practices in the identification of heredity used this type of research. While for varying health problems enough at times to analyze certain genes, marked with a marker, the entire genome is not examined, although obviously the data for the conclusions would be obtained.
the problem is that medical schools do not have super powerful computers. If such were, then the entire analysis procedure of heredity could be done very quickly.
Time passes and everything changes and in Chicago, in one of the medical universities at this time is already being approbation system for rapid analysis of the human genome. In fact to analyze 240 full genomes will need this computer to no more than two days of operation. Called the super Beagle computer. The name indirectly connected with the name of Darwin (Scientist who brought science to a standstill, and as famous), when the ship Beagle he circled the entire globe, it was in far 1831.
From this here technology reduce the cost of the process does not work, but the data processing speed considerably increases. Now, scientists can analyze a greater amount of information at the gene level and to make more accurate predictions on hereditary traits. to
have Already used the system to calculate genome 61, has been used, not the best hardware and software even in this case the download was not more than 25% of the maximum possible level.
When a computer running at full power, then everyone will propose a procedure for the sequencing of the genome at 100% for only $ 1,000. Knowing all mutations of genes in an individual case, it will be possible to guarantee 100% claim on the inheritance. Computer engineering in medicine!
