New Market Dynamics Report: HPC Life Sciences

HPC Life Sciences

Scientific research in the life sciences is often akin to searching for needles in haystacks. Finding the one protein, chemical, or genome that behaves or responds in the way the scientist is looking for is the key to the discovery process. For decades, high performance computing (HPC) systems have accelerated this process, often by helping to identify and eliminate in feasible targets sooner.
