NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – SGI said today it has deployed a computational solution for the Malaysian Genome Institute’s research programs.
MGI is a network-based organization focused on tropical bioresources and uses genome sequencing, comparative and functional genomics, and structural biology.
SGI said it worked with Quantum Beez Sdn Bhd, which formerly was called Open Source Systems, to design and develop the hybrid system for MGI.
The computational system SGI developed included its BioCluster, Altix shared memory server, and InfiniteStorage CXFS SAN shared-file system.
MGI currently is running the Microbial Genomics Research for Gene and Natural Product Discovery project, which will use the SGI system to study the genomes of a regional soil pathogen and an avian protozoan.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
