C-DAC develops supercomputer for bioinformatics in India

Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) is planning to launch a new super computer with  dedicated applications for bioinformatics in India.      The machine would have a computing capacity of 1.5 terraflops and would be integrated with the genome grid. The grid for biofinformatics provides computational capacity for handling enormous data for genome analysis, complex algorithms for molecular simulation. The genome grid would be integrated with C-DAC’s Garuda grid that connects 17 cities in India. In the first phase of the project, around 40 academic institutes would be connected to the grid. In the next phase, industry will also involve in the project. The TCG Group has approached C-DAC with a proposal to use C-DAC’s grid computing and HPC for its BT Park coming up at Pune.
