Unlock Bio IT Puzzles with New Code Pipelines

The saying that “life sciences is like a puzzle” has never been more true than it is today. The life sciences are in the midst of a dramatic transformation as technology redefines what is possible for human health and healthcare. That’s why the upcoming Bio-IT World event in Boston, April 21-23, holds so much promise for moving the conversation forward and sharing knowledge that truly helps people.

As the show approaches, we’re excited to roll out a new resource for you that offers an optimized compendium of codes with benchmarks and replication recipes. When used on Intel®-based computing platforms, and in concert with other Intel® software tools and products, such as Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs), the optimized code can help you decipher data and accelerate the path to discovery.

Industry leaders and authors of key genomic codes have supported this new resource to ensure that genome processing runs as fast as possible on Intel® based systems and clusters. The results have been significantly improved speed of key genomic programs and the development of new hardware and system solutions to get genome sequencing and processing down to minutes instead of days.

Download codes

On the new resource page, you can currently download the following codes to run on Intel® Xeon® processors:

  • BWA
  • MPI-HMMER
  • BLASTn/BLASTp
  • GATK

If you’re looking for new tools to help handle growing molecular dynamics packages, which can span from hundreds to millions of particles, take advantage of these codes that are compatible with both Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors and allow you to “reuse” rather than “recode:”

  • AMBER 14
  • GROMACS 5.0 RC1
  • NAMD
  • LAMMPS
  • Quantum ESPRESSO
  • NWChem

Solve the cube

Finally, because life sciences is like a puzzle, look for a little fun and games at Bio-IT World that will test your puzzle solving skills and benefit charity.

If you’ll be at the show, be sure to grab a customized, genomic-themed Rubik’s Cube at the keynote session on Thursday, April 23, and join the fun trying to solve the puzzle after the speeches at our location on the show floor. Just by participating you will be eligible to win great prizes like a tablet, a Basis watch, or SMS headphones. Here’s a little Rubik’s Cube insight if you need help.

Plus, we’re giving away up to $10,000 to the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGEN) in a tweet campaign that you can support. Watch for more details.

What questions do you have? We’re looking forward to seeing you at Bio-IT World next month.
