November 7th, 2005 | Filed under: Biology, Biotech, Computing, Future | 3 Comments »

Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory have set a new world’s record by performing the first million-atom computer simulation in biology. Using the “Q Machine� supercomputer, Los Alamos computer scientists have created a molecular simulation of the cell’s protein-making structure, the ribosome. The project, simulating 2.64 million atoms in motion, is more than six times larger than any biological simulations performed to date. [press release]
