Atos: high performance computing resources for Spain's CNB
(CercleFinance.com) - Atos has announced that the Biocomputing Unit at the Spanish National Center for Biotechnology (CNB), part of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), is using Atos' supercomputing resource to produce a refined 3D model of the SARS-Cov2 spike protein.
"By knowing more detail about the structure of this protein, which is the one that the virus uses to enter human cells, researchers can better understand how the virus initiates infection. This important step forward may help in the development of a vaccine," Atos said.
"The HPC resource includes Atos' BullSequana X supercomputer, based at the CNB-CSIC in Madrid, plus additional compute capabilities and access to Atos experts at Atos' new global HPC, AI & Quantum Life Sciences Center of Excellence," it added.
