"Blackstone Technology Group today announced that Celera Genomics (NYSE:CRA), a PE Corporation business, has selected Blackstone to assist the company with configuration and roll-out of one of the world's largest compute farms.”

"Prior to the computer farm, computers at Celera were organized by function. While one group of computers at Celera's headquarters was processing data, another group would remain idle waiting for data. This downtime meant that Celera's computers were not being tapped to their full potential. Now, with their compute farm in place, Celera is able to use all of its processors, all the time as they move forward quickly in their quest to map the human genome.”

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
