Supercomputer simulates H1N1 virus

Researchers have achieved a major breakthrough in the battle against the H1N1 influenza virus with the aid of a gpu accelerated supercomputer.

A team from the Institute of Process Engineering of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS-IPE) is using Nvidia Tesla gpus to create the world's first computer simulation of a whole H1N1 influenza virus at the atomic level.
Using the Mole-8.5 gpu accelerated supercomputer, which uses more than 2200 Nvidia Tesla gpus, the researchers generated molecular dynamics simulation as a 'computational microscope' to peer into the atomic structure of the virus.
