INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev.--Time Logic, a bioinformatics hardware company here, has announced that it will form a Scientific Advisory Board chaired by Douglas Brutlag, director of the bioinformatics resource and associate professor of biochemistry at Stanford University, which "is currently using Time Logic's DeCypher II supercomputer to process Smith-Waterman and Framesearch bioinformatics algorithms," according to Brutlag. "The performance and reliability of the DeCypher II has been flawless. One of the reasons I have agreed to serve on Time Logic's Scientific Advisory Board is the approach Time Logic takes toward solving bioinformatics problems, specifically, the use of reconfigurable logic," he said. "Recon figurable logic allows the DeCypher II product to be updated simply and conveniently when computational biology algorithms are im proved, which happens regularly."
"Dr. Brutlag's extensive experience in the theory and implementation of bioinformatic processes adds significant strengths to the company and added value to our products," said Jim Lindelien, Time Logic's chairman and vice-president for engineering.
