The role of High Performance Computing (HPC) in Medicine is greatly increase in these last years, moving from basic research to the clinics. With the advent of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies, diverse areas of human health have been investigated through different omics techniques. The extensive use of these NGS platforms to high throughput profile human health issues in a cost-efficient manner, is generating huge amount of sequencing data pushing " (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Oatext/1439466783004774) # $ % (https://www.youtube.com/user/users/oatext) ○ ○ ○ Article Article Info Author Info Figures & Data bioinformatic research in the big-data field. Speed, accuracy and reproducibility of massively sequencing analysis have allowed to transfer molecular biology knowledge into precision medicine. Furthermore, Molecular Dynamics (MD) earned a great importance in aiding genome research. Sequencing studies of cancer have allowed to detect and characterize mutated genes that drive tumorigenesis. As a complementary approach, from a biophysical perspective, MD simulations, executed on HPC architectures, have permitted to investigate the role played by pathological mutations on the molecular mechanism of activation.
