A group of researchers from the University of Chicago found the supercomputer Beagle could help advance genome analysis, as it is capable of analyzing 240 full genomes in about two days. "The supercomputer can process many genomes simultaneously rather than one at a time. ... It converts whole genome sequencing, which has primarily been used as a research tool, into something that is immediately valuable for patient care," said Megan Puckelwartz, one of the authors of the study.
