Webinar: Uncovering the HIV Capsid with Kepler GPUs Running NAMD and VMD — July 11
July 11, 2013 @ 12:00 am
In an upcoming webinar, Dr. Juan R. Perilla will present information on how experimental and computational scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Pittsburg resolved the HIV capsid’s chemical structure. Description: As reported recently on the cover of Nature, the researchers combined NMR structure analysis, electron microscopy and data-guided molecular dynamics simulations utilizing VMD to prepare and analyze simulations performed using NAMD on NVIDIA GPUs in one of the most powerful computers worldwide, Blue Waters, to obtain and characterize the HIV-1 capsid. The discovery can now guide the design of novel drugs for enhanced antiviral therapy. Also learn how NAMD performs with the latest Kepler GPUs, as well as details about GPU Test Drive (www.nvidia.com/GPUTestDrive) and how to try NAMD on Kepler GPUs for free. (Flux is adding 40 NVIDIA Kepler K20 GPUs, which will be in service by the start of the fall semester. More details will be announced soon.) Time/Date: Noon-1 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, July 11 For more information and to register: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/254924490
