Genomics

Computing for a sustainable world

High performance computing in Denmark plays a crucial role in finding solutions to the challenges of the future, such as eliminating poverty and hunger, protecting our climate, reducing inequalities, promoting education and health, and sustainable economic growth

Large genome project tackles pandemic

COVID-19 has been added to the list of health threats addressed in the 1+Million Genomes Initiative (B1MG), a joint effort by 23 European countries.

Protecting reptiles and amphibians

A new genomics resource has been established to help understand and protect Australia’s unique reptiles and amphibians.

Better dosages for children sick with cancer

By crunching large data sets, researchers are able to identify a specific genetic cause in one of seven young cancer patients. This allows for prescribing more accurate doses of medicine, avoiding unnecessary side effects

Closing in on the genetics behind psychiatric diseases

The international iPSYCH project identifies genes related to specific mental illnesses to inspire development of better medicine and earlier diagnosis.

Maximizing the value of genomic data through secure transnational sharing

The European “1+ Million Genomes” initiative aims at linking genomic databases across borders. But there is a challenge: You must do it do it without compromising data security.

Integrating the data of life – to determine the appropriate drug

Storing and analysing genomic data at the scale of a million people and connecting this data with other resources – such as data on lifestyle and disease history – will transform our understanding of how diseases can be cured through individualised treatments.

Preserving a vital food source with the help of advanced research infrastructure

Scientists in Kenya and Australia collaborate on a research project to diagnose viruses that infect cassava, and sequencing whole cassava virus genomes in order to help eradicate infection.

Proteomics project faster with grids and lightpaths

The research field of proteomics contributes to important new medical insights, producing vast amounts of data along the way.  To convert these massive amounts of proteomics data into knowledge requires dedicated computing and storage capacity.

Using big data solutions to solve the mystery of worm behavior

To study the strategies animals use to navigate the world around them, researchers analyse the behaviour of roundworms to create a model system. The project faced a number of data challenges that threatened to hold the team back from their scientific goal.

Research network connects hospital gene equipment to supercomputer

Without a direct connection across the Danish NREN, the national hospital Rigshospitalet would not have been able to use its new gene sequencing equipment.

Delivering the data for groundbreaking cancer research

When the Sheba Cancer Research Center in Tel Aviv wanted to transfer 300 terabytes of data from the US National Cancer Institute Center for Cancer Genomics in Chicago to local storage to advance their research, they thought the process would be relatively straightforward. It wasn't, and so they sought advice from Israel's NREN to find the solution.
