LinuxWorld Farming, Linux-Style
"Gone are the days when any pioneer with a bit of hardware, hard code, and hard work could run a small Linux farm and compete with the best plantations. The smart folks at biotech firm Incyte Genomics of Palo Alto, Calif., have just invented agribusiness. You remember everything you ever tried to tell your boss or colleagues about Linux's stability, price performance, and reliability? Well, Incyte has put those ideas to the test and come up grinning like a bandit.

To map the human genome, Incyte runs the world's largest commercial Linux farm, with more than 2,000 Linux processors chomping away on tens of millions of jobs per day. In its datacenter, laid out like a temple in the middle of Incyte's corporate headquarters, space costs a king's ransom -- but the company has come up with clever ways to address that problem..."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
