    Director of Computational Biology Ajay Royyuru points to a drawing of the chemical formula for DNA at IBM Research headquarters in Yorktown Heights, NY, Tuesday, December 17, 2013. In five years, cloud-based cognitive computers will routinely help doctors use DNA data to provide effective, tailored oncology treatments. The advanced systems will cull through medical literature, clinical records and genomic information to present a set of medications shown to best attack the individual patient's cancer cells, making personalized medicine available at a scale and speed never before possible.
