6 Physical Sciences Activities Temasek Labs Distributed Simulation of Flow over Dimpled Surfaces Skewed Satellite ImageGeo-rectified Satellite Image Geo-rectification of Satellite Images Diagnostics & Repair Scheduling Organized by : Distributed Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) Simulation Complex Design & Modeling Collaborative Engineering Design & Simulation

7 Life Sciences Activities GridBlast E-Cell & Gene Simulation Encyclopedia of Life Rationalizing Life Sciences database download, mirroring & maintenance Hosting of locally generated databases (ala NCBI) Future Enhancements –Allow queries across main databases –Support integration of Singapore data –Expand audience to include medical professionals Organised by


9 Stages –1: Ideas Competition –2: Selection –3: Development –4: Resource Donation 3 categories –Schools –Institutes of Higher Learning –Open Sponsored by Joint Organizers with PC Grid Computing

10 DSTAs funding for –Vacation Camp & 7 December 2005 –Grid-enabling of 2 new applications –200 United Devices client licenses for schools In discussion –IDA funding for ICT Clubs in Schools Supported byJointly organized by PC Grid Computing

11 AeroGenome – Crunching on a PC Grid Aim: To study bacterial micro- organisms in the air in Singapore. Motivation: Air plays significant role in public & environmental health Initial dataset of 20,000 DNA sequences were matched against database of 3 million known sequences. Single run on isolated compute resources took an entire month. Same process took less than 2 days on Future: Scale up study using larger datasets. Courtesy of Dr.Patrick Tan, GIS
