"Linux NetworX, Inc., a provider of large-scale clustered
computer solutions for Internet, industry and research fields,
announced today that the National Center for Macromolecular Imaging
(NCMI) at Baylor College of Medicine will use the company's
clustered computers in its world-renowned molecular imaging
"Using a 32-processor cluster system from Linux NetworX, Baylor
College of Medicine reconstructs the molecular configurations of
disease and illness-causing viruses and other molecules and
develops three-dimensional models of their structures. A
cutting-edge technique then allows researchers to view the viruses
as if they were locks. By properly studying these "locks," they
hope to find the "keys" to opening and destroying them."
"In the past, much of this research was done on large
supercomputers costing millions of dollars. But today, because of
price-performance issues, clustered-computer alternatives are being
selected to handle the large amounts of computation, data handling
and storage required."
