Extreme Scale Computational Biology
SESSION: Invited Talks 1
EVENT TYPE: Invited Speakers
TIME: 10:30AM - 11:15AM
SESSION CHAIR: William Kramer
The molecular dynamics and visualization programs NAMD and VMD serve over 300,000 registered users in many fields of biology and medicine. These programs are on every kind of computer from personal laptops to massive supercomputers, and will soon be able to generate atomic-level views of entire living cells, opening a treasure chest of data for biotechnology, pharmacology and medicine. This lecture will summarize the impressive NAMD and VMD development over the last several years that led to the programs' excellent performance on Blue Waters, Titan and Stampede. It also describes the spectacular research discoveries enabled by petascale computing, which become more exciting every day and are leading to a veritable revolution in biology as researchers become able to describe very large structures which were previously inaccessible. I will further discuss ongoing effort in power-conscientious NAMD and VMD computing on ARM+GPU processors needed for utilizing the next generation of computers.
