Supercomputers Aid in Fight Against Superbugs

Jun 30, 2014 |

‘Typhoid’, ‘cholera’ and ‘e-coli’ are words that paint an unpleasant picture of a bacterial infection. It is estimated that there are 3 to 5 million cholera cases across the world resulting in between 100,000 and 120,000 deaths every year. Bacterial infections spread widely, and they spread quickly. Sometimes it’s only a matter of hours before Read more…

That question was at the heart of Cycle Computing’s BigScience Challenge. Now winner Victor Ruotti of the Morgridge Institute for Research has completed his utility supercomputing run, logging over a compute century on the Amazon cloud. The results will be used to build an indexing system for stem cells and their derivatives.
