The ongoing war between humans and disease takes place in medical research laboratories where the analysis of enormous quantities of data means the difference between continued suffering and a long-awaited cure.

Rated among the top 10 US medical schools in the country by US News and World Report Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, is one of the main battlefields in this war. It is the only private medical school in the Southwest, and is recognized nationally for excellence in education, research and patient care.

A cornerstone of the College's research foundation is the Human Genome Sequencing Center, established in 1996 during the crucial final phase of the Human Genome Project. It is one of the three sites selected nationwide to complete the final phase of the project.

Finding a single gene amid the vast stretches of DNA that make up the human genome – three billion base-pairs worth – requires analyzing, managing and protecting thousands

of terabytes of data. The Human Genome Project (HGP) is devoted to developing new and better tools to make gene hunting faster, cheaper and practical for almost any scientist to accomplish.
