ETRI becomes data partner for global genome research group

Korea’s state-run Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) was designated a flagship data center for the world’s largest genome analysis research group, International Cancer Genome Consortium. By joining the team, ETRI’s cloud-based supercomputing system called Maha will be used to analyze genetic information from a pool of 2,000 cancer patients.

The consortium consists of six supercomputer data centers from countries including the United States, Japan and Spain. It hopes this will reduce spending on finding best-fit cancer drugs worth about 60 trillion won ($58.7 billion).
