Green Destiny + mpiBLAST = Bioinfomagic

  title={Green Destiny + mpiBLAST = Bioinfomagic},
  author={W. Feng},
This paper outlines how our highly efficient, power-aware supercomputer called Green Destiny and our open-source parallelization of BLAST called mpiBLAST combine to create a bit of “bioinfomagic.” Green Destiny, featured in The New York Times and winner of a 2003 R&D 100 Award, revolutionized high-performance computing by re-defining performance to focus on issues of efficiency, reliability, and availability. Green Destiny is a 240-processor supercomputer that operates at a peak rate of 240… CONTINUE READING
