    KISTI has attracted ICGC-ARGO Regional Data Processing Center in Korea

    KISTI has concluded MoU, aimed to operate ICGC-ARGO Regional Data Processing Center in Korea with NCC(National Cancer Center) and SNU(Seoul National University) at 2nd ICGC(International  Cancer Genome Consortium)-ARGO(Accelerating Research on Genome Oncology) held on May 28th at the university of Glasgow in UK. The role of RDPC is to collect, verify and distribute Genome Data generated by participating countries of ARGO project and to transmit them to Central Data Coordination Center.    By operating DPC in Korea, KISTI, NCC and SNU will establish computing infrastructure with maximum capacity of processing 10,000 genome data per year and will process genome data those generated from Korea, Japan and China. And also, the RDPC will collect cancer genome data of Korea and global clinic cancer genome data which is worth about US$417 million. By sharing, analyzing and conducting joint research on cancer genome data, DPC is expected to facilitate cancer genome research in Korea. Moreover, KISTI, with its role as Tier-1 center of CERN, will lay the firm foundation for Global Experimental Data Hub Center in Asia by operating DPC in Korea. Dr.Choi Heeyoon, President of KISTI said “Attracting DPC in Korea is successful case of  collaboration among KISTI, SNU and NCC utilizing their specialties” and “is hoping to promote research competitiveness in biomedical data”.
