[Source: ASU News] – At the Arizona Science Center, experts will explain how a powerful high-speed data-processing link based at ASU promises speedier progress in the battle against debilitating diseases

Large supercomputers and high- bandwidth networking are enabling researchers to accelerate efforts to discover more effective treatments for people afflicted by diseases such as diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
One of the fastest computer data-processing links dedicated to aid such biomedical research has been implemented between laboratories at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) in Phoenix and the facilities of the High Performance Computing Initiative (HPCI) of the Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
