Nvidia customers in the US and the Middle East expect that the newly introduced A100 servers will accelerate research into the novel coronavirus.

The two companies had worked closely together since Parabricks spun out of the University of Michigan in 2015 and entered the Nvidia accelerator program.

Computational hardware maker Nvidia has purchased Parabricks, which has applied GPU technology to bring whole-genome sequencing processing time under an hour.

Scripps Research Translational Institute has teamed with Nvidia to create a center of excellence for AI in genomics and wearable sensors.

The funds will support TGen's efforts to use graphics processing units to reduce single-cell transcriptome data analysis times from months to days.

The collaborators aim to build an artificial intelligence network that will support Vice President Joe Biden's Cancer Moonshot initiative.

Benjamin Madej, a chemistry and biochemistry PhD student at the University of California, San Diego, has won the 2012-2013 Nvidia Graduate Fellowship Program award for his molecular dynamics research using graphics processing unit-based computing.

China's BGI has implemented an Nvidia graphics processing unit-based server farms to run its sequence analysis software, Nvidia said this week.

The scientists will use GPU-accelerated alignment and mapping software in combination with sensitive mutation detection methods to deliver "an optimized and powerful solution" for cancer genome analysis.
