GPU Supercomputer Simulation of Complete H1N1 virus Brandon Abbott
Motivation / Objective Swine Flu / H1N1 Pandemic Summary Combination of bird, pig, and human flu virus First in the US April of 2009 Nov 14 th 2009 – 200,000 hospitalizations 10,000 deaths
Chinese H1N1 Flu Study - Goals Institute of Process Engineering of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS-IPE) “A computational microscope” Goals: To control epidemics To create anti-viral drugs To see the whole process of the reactions Reactions under a real microscope often occur too quickly.
GPU Super Computing Method Mole 8.5 Supercomputer 2,200 NIVIDIA Telsa GPU’s 288 Server nodes Able to simulate the whole H1N1 virus at an atomic level Each day they simulated… 770 picoseconds of simulation (1 trillionth of a second) Stepping at 1 femtosecond (1 quadrillionth of a second) 300 million atoms simulated.
