"The nation's fastest "unclassified" supercomputer will power up to full strength today in Richland to tackle some of the toughest problems in biology and the environment.

"There's that stuff in the ground at the Hanford site, to begin with," said Scott Studham, manager of computing at the computer's home at the U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory."

""It's also tailored for bioinformatics and computational biology," he said. With the recently completed sequencing of the entire human genetic code, or genome, biologists need powerful computers to work with all of the 3 billion bits of DNA."

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.
