Video: HPC and the Tree of Life Project

Jason Bond from Auburn University gave this talk at SC17 in Denver. “The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world. On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny).”

Exploring Evolutionary Relationships through CIPRES

Researchers are exploring the Tree of Life with the help of the CIPRES portal at the San Diego Supercomputer Center. “As a community-built resource, CIPRES addresses what the scientists really want and need to do in the real world of research,” said Mishler. “Aside from increasing our understanding of the evolutionary relationships of this planet’s diverse range of species, the research also has yielded results of critical importance to the health and welfare of humans.”
