One Thousand Years of Cancer Research

DataseamEducator Blog

In the first 70 days of the calendar year, the DataseamGrid completed over 1,000 years of critical cancer research. Since January 1, 2017 researchers at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center have used this massive Kentucky cloud-based computing system to investigate tumor suppressor pathways, target specific genes and identify existing drugs that may be used to fight different cancers.

This unique computing system provides 40,000 Gigahertz of processing power from desktop computers sitting in 38 school systems across the state. It extracts the maximum amount of computing power from every system around the clock, not only during evenings and weekends, but also between classes and other low use periods.
