It takes an extremely powerful computer to convert patient samples to usable data about our genes. That is why the engine of the National Genome Center is a supercomputer that can fit, load and process all the data being sampled from patients all over the country.
The core of the new infrastructure service that all Danish hospitals are free to use is a supercomputer system. The National Genome Center's aim is to ensure that all patients get the same opportunities for high-quality genetic analysis, regardless of where they live.
The National Genome Center is a world-leading facility when it comes to handling huge amounts of diverse health data in the field of Personalised Medicine. The supercomputer system is designed to collect, contain, analyse, handle and combine extremely large and diverse sets of data like text from patient records, X-rays and genetic information. The supercomputer is so powerful that it is capable of uncovering patterns and connections that give a much more precise picture of the patient who is about to undergo treatment.
