Peter R. Taylor, Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative and School of Chemistry University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, will present "Life Sciences Computation for Victoria" at 1:30 p.m. TODAY (Nov. 19) in NCSA 1040 as a part of the NCSA Director’s Seminar. Please help spread the word and encourage faculty, staff, and students to attend.
Abstract: The Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) is a $100 million activity that aims to bring the power of high-end computation to the life sciences around Melbourne and across the state of Victoria. It began operation in February 2010 and with Avoca, our IBM Blue Gene/Q, is currently the most powerful computing facility devoted to life sciences computation in the world. But in addition to its computing resources VLSCI also employs a number of active researchers in the life sciences, with particular emphasis on genomics, and medical imaging: these researchers collaborate with numerous groups at universities, hospitals and medical research institutes, and other institutions across the state of Victoria. In this talk I will present an overview of VLSCI and its various activities.
