Intel Opens Parallel Computing Center in Tennessee


November 1, 2013 | The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, (UT) has received a grant from Intel to develop computer codes to enable personalized medicine. The funding will open an Intel Parallel Computing Center at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences, or JICS, at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The center will initially focus on two projects in computational biology. The first project will optimize a molecular dynamics code called GROMACS to operate on next-generation Intel machines. GROMACS is primarily used to study the interactions of biochemical molecules, enabling drug discovery and metabolic research. The second project will aim to optimize BLAST.  Oak Ridge Today
