Petascale Computing Tools Could Provide Deeper Insight into Genomic Evolution

Scicasts™: Petascale Computing Tools Could Provide Deeper Insight into Genomic Evolution

"Technological advances in high-throughput DNA sequencing have opened up the possibility of determining how living things are related by analyzing the ways in which their genes have been rearranged on chromosomes. However, inferring such evolutionary relationships from rearrangement events is computationally intensive on even the most advanced computing systems available today....."
