Melbourne researchers are now simulating in 3D, the motion of the complete human rhinovirus, the most frequent cause of the common cold, on Australia´s fastest supercomputer, paving the way for new drug development. Rhinovirus infection is linked to about 70 per cent of all asthma exacerbations with more than 50 per cent of these patients requiring hospitalization. Furthermore, over 35 per cent of patients with acute chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are hospitalized each...

It has been more than two years since the US lost the number one spot on the TOP500 list of the world´s fastest supercomputers to China, which then lost that spot to Japan´s K Computer. Now, after IBM unveiled its Sequoia BlueGene/Q System which manages a sustained 16.32 petaflops, the title is returning to the US, dropping Japan to second. The computer, built for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) by IBM, outpaces Japan´s K Computer by more than 5 petaflops...
