IBM's Technical Computing organization
IBM's OpenPOWER Group
is the organization that includes high performance computing (HPC) within the IBM Systems Group.  This group is responsible for the strategy, marketing and identification of areas that can benefit from IBM's high end technology.  The life sciences is such an area, and IBM is and will continue to bring valued solutions to life sciences.

IBM's Research
is a partner with IBM's HPC and OpenPOWER on developing the next generation of high performance data centric computers. In addition, the Research Division has many groups investigating numerous application areas in collaboration with IBM's customers and partners in the life sciences.  This includes IBM Research’s Data Centric Solutions and Computational Biology Center.


QuartzBio, part of Precision for Medicine, is a multiomics data integration and interrogation platform. Life science companies use QuartzBio to unravel biomarker and meta-data to generate actionable, analytic-ready data sets. QuartzBio applies machine learning to analyze biological and clinical data streams, extracting knowledge and insights that accelerate the development pathway. The QuartzBio platform is the first platform to successfully integrate diverse biomarker data with machine learning and computational biology based approaches for insight generation — making the complex connections within clinical data ecosystems a reality.
