Trends in High-Performance Computing Requirements for Computer- Aided Drug Design

Author(s): George Vacek, Dave Mullally, Knute Christensen.

Abstract:

Computer-aided drug design (CADD) has become a mainstream component of the drug discovery and development process. High Performance Computing (HPC) provides the power that allows CADD researchers to explore more designs in less time, and some of the greatest improvements in CADD result directly from advances in HPC. This paper examines some of the more significant trends in HPC that influence computer-aided drug design (CADD).

Keywords: High-performance computing, blades servers, multi-core processors, grid computing, hardware accelerators
