April 16, 2012—FREMONT, California

SGI Executive to Speak at Bio-IT World Conference and Expo '12

Trusted leader in big data processing and analysis to showcase compute and storage solutions for genomics research and other biomedical fields.

Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA. — April 24, 2012 through April 26, 2012

Who: SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), the trusted leader in technical computing

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Where: Seaport World Trade Center, 200 Seaport Blvd, Boston, Mass.

What: SGI is participating in the annual Bio-IT Conference and Expo, and is exhibiting in booth #232. Jill Matzke PhD, director of product marketing at SGI, will be joined by Dr. Rune Linding, principal investigator and research group leader of the Department of Systems Biology at the Technical University of Denmark.

The presentation, entitled "Large Shared Memory and Big Dynamic Range Computing - Essential Drivers in Global Modeling of Cancer Cells" takes place at 1:45pm as part of the Track 1 'IT Infrastructure - Hardware' sessions being held at the Conference.

Why: The size and complexity of cell-imaging, mass-spectrometry and deep-sequencing systems biology data is exploding. Researchers perform global, non-linear algorithmic integration of these to model cancer progression. While in scale corresponding to models of climate/weather systems the underlying data is vastly more complex creating formidable computational challenges. The discussion will explain how computational dynamic range and large-shared memory are two critical technologies in systems biology, translational cancer research and personalized medicine.
