A Blacklight for Bioinformatics

Premium

When it comes to high-performance computing systems suited to genomics, researchers might be hard pressed to do better than Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center's Blacklight supercomputer system. Under its hood are 256 SGI blades that comprise a total of 4,096 processing cores at 2.27 gigahertz. This means a total peak performance of 37 teraflops — powerful, yes, but nothing to write home about considering the number one-ranked system in the world currently operates at 10.5 petaflops.
