Supercomputing Contest Winner

By Salvatore Salamone

Oct 17, 2005 | A joint entry from Aaron Darling of University of Wisconsin-Madison Computer Sciences Department and Victor Ruotti of the WiCell Research Institute has been selected as the winning entry in the Bio-IT World/Orion MultiSystems Personal Supercomputing Contest.

The winning entry involves high-throughput alignment and identification of micro-rearrangements in mammalian genomes for stem cell research. Working with Orion’s manager of application engineering, Stu Jackson, the researchers will get two weeks of run time on an Orion DS-96 — a 96-node deskside cluster. We will report on the results of this analysis — the equivalent of nearly 3.68 years of CPU time — in a future issue of Bio-IT World.
