The Center for Genomic Medicine at the national hospital Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark, performs genetic analyzes of samples taken from patients. The employees use sequencing machines to convert the samples to digital data, which they then analyze on Computerome.
Researchers at the Aarhus University Institute for Biomedicine and Bioinformatics Research Centre (BiRC) use two computer systems: The GenomeDenmark cluster in the city of Aarhus and the national supercomputer Computerome at the Technical University of Denmark.
Computerome is run by DeiC (Danish e-Infrastructure Cooperation), the Danish NREN (National Research and Education Network). The two computers are more than a hundred kilometers apart.
