Abstract:   HPC has been critical for the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine (CPGM) at Children's Mercy Hospital to make great progress in the search for rare childhood diseases. With advanced next-gen sequencing technologies, a Linux compute cluster, and an Isilon storage cluster, the center has been able to make incredible discoveries and help drive genomic testing in the pediatric arena. By releasing their clinical test, STAT-Seq, and utilizing homegrown analysis tools, CPGM hopes to change the way medicine is practiced.
