The lab participates in the UberCloud HPC Experiment Round 3 with the project: "TEAM 61 – Using Cloud Computing to Perform Molecular Dynamics Simulations of the Mutant PI3Kα Protein". Download the full report here.
The Ubercloud HPC Experiment aims to explore the end-to-end process of accessing remote resources in computer centers and in HPC Clouds, and to study and overcome the potential roadblocks. Read more about it from a previous blog entry.
The CompBio Experiment: How far are we from an ideal Computing-as-a-Service or HPC-in-the-Cloud model?
Cloud computing-on-demand gives end users many benefits by gaining access to additional compute resources beyond their current internal resources. But how far are we from an ideal Computing-as-a-Service or HPC-in-the-Cloud model?
To address this question, Wolfgang Gentzsch (HPC and Cloud Projects Specialist) and Burak Yenier (VP of Operations at CashEdge) organized the Uber-Cloud Experiment to explore the end-to-end process of accessing remote resources in computer centers and in HPC Clouds, and to study and overcome the potential roadblocks. Round 1 of the experiment kicked off in July 2012. Read the results here.
Over 250 participants have already registered for Round 2 and we are still seeking computational biologists and any others who would like to be involved. To participate in Round 2 or just monitor it closely—and to receive the final Round 1 report with all findings—register at http://www.compbioexperiment.com.
This is an open invitation to members of the Life Sciences community to join the experiment for a 3-month experiment, where they will apply the cloud computing service model to workloads on remote Cluster Computing resources in the areas of bio, pharma, and chemistry.
Our lab is a registered participant in this effort.
In this video, researchers perform a reconstruction and simulation of the poliovirus using the BlueGene/Q supercomputer at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative. The poliovirus model is being used as a basis for understanding antiviral drugs, virus infection and helps us to learn how to model related viruses such as Enterovirus 71.
