"The Cray SV1 supercomputer, housed at the South African National Bioinformatics Institute (Sanbi) will be used for tasks that include the search for greater understanding of HIV."

"[Sanbi director Prof Winston Hide] said the supercomputer made South Africa as competitive in the challenging field of genome analysis as research centres anywhere else in the world. "

"It may not be able to provide the answer to life, the universe and everything else, but the new million-dollar supercomputer about to arrive at the South African National Bioinformatics Institute (Sanbi) may help find why some Africans are immune to HIV.

The supercomputer, as yet unnamed, will be the first research-orientated machine on the continent. It is being handed over by United States-based company Cray, as part of a collaborative research effort with Sanbi, which is part of the University of the Western Cape."

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.
