CUDA against influenza

We all know, how Standord is doing in protein folding, amino acid base research. But more news from Illinois are coming in.
A group of scientists from the University Illinois at present actively uses a  CUDA platform and NVIDIA video chip for the simulation of cell behavior. The reaction of influenza virus on the medicines are a special case of similar interaction. Scientists help to predict, how the virus of influenza A/H1N1 will react to one or other medicine , and also how it will mutate in the future. The foresight of virus development will allow to create more effective vaccines.
According to scientists, the use of  NVIDIA video chip will accelerate calculations by 200-400 times in comparison with the CPU’s.
We wish them the best!
