Research Lab at leading Canadian university uses HPE technologies to collect and analyze vast amounts of genome data and accelerate the identification of how pathogens mutate and spread

HPE announced that McMaster University's McArthur Lab developed one of the fastest and most accurate software packages for determining COVID-19 variants, using the HPE Superdome Flex server to quickly ingest and process raw genomic data, unlock insights and help the world get ahead of virus mutations. The HPE solution was used effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic to help monitor variants and support researchers investigating COVID-19 infections by significantly reducing the time to collect and analyze data to sequence positive COVID-19 cases from typically nine to 10 hours to under an hour.
