How DreamLab supports our researchers
The problem: a virtual tsunami of information
Huge advances in DNA sequencing technology have enabled rapid sequencing of cancer genomes, creating a virtual tsunami of genetic information. One way of processing this information is to run computer-based simulations to model the genetic networks in cancer and find common ‘signatures’ among patients.
These signatures will help us understand how different patients respond differently to various drugs, help us predict which patients will benefit, and help us find completely new strategies for treating cancer.
However, we are limited by the huge computing power required to run this simulation process.
We are grateful to the following organisations for their support of the DreamLab project.
DreamLab is powered by Vodafone, with Vodafone Foundation supporting Garvan’s research with grant funding for three years.
The DreamLab app was built by the clever team at b2cloud.
