Visualizing and Simulating Atomic Structures with CUDA

In this video, John Stone from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign discusses the role of CUDA and GPUs in processing large datasets to visualize and simulate high-resolution atomic structures. CUDA does this by allowing researchers to describe hundreds of thousands to millions of independent, data-parallel work units and write software that executes on those work units, all while achieving peak hardware performance.

Visualizing Biomolecular Complexes on x86 and KNL Platforms: Integrating VMD and OSPRay

John Stone from the University of Illinois presented this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference at SC15. “VMD is designed for modeling, visualization, and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. It may be used to view more general molecules, as VMD can read standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) files and display the contained structure.”
