Nvidia launches Tesla Bio Workbench

The NVIDIA® Tesla™ Bio Workbench enables biophysicists and computational chemists to push the boundaries of biochemical research. It turns a standard PC into a ‘computational laboratory’ capable of running complex bioscience codes, in fields such as drug discovery and DNA sequencing, more than 10-20 times faster through the use of NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. It consists of:

Bioscience applications
This community site for downloading, discussing, and viewing the results of these applications
GPU-based platforms that enable these applications to run at 1/10th the cost of CPU-only computers"
