Science Daily has an article today about researchers at Virginia Tech using their Mac Xserve-based supercomputer to build computer models of processes in living cells.

Virginia Tech researchers in computer science and biology have used the university’s supercomputer, System X, to create models and algorithms that make it possible to simulate the cell cycle — the processes leading to cell division. They have demonstrated that the new mathematical models and numerical algorithms provide powerful tools for studying the complex processes going on inside living cells.
