MSKCC Comp Bio Center to Use SGI Altix Linux System for Pathway Modeling

NEW YORK, May 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's Computational Biology Center has installed an Altix 3000 supercomputer from SGI as part of its work in cancer pathway simulation and modeling, SGI said yesterday.

The MSKCC center said it will use the 12-processor Altix system running 64-bit Linux with 48 GB of system memory to support its research analyzing gene expression profiles in order to simulate cellular control networks.

Financial terms of the agreement were not provided.
