Share Your Science: Unraveling Membrane Proteins with GPUs

Erik Lindahl, Professor of Biophysics at Stockholm University, talks about using the GPU-accelerated GROMACS application to simulate protein dynamics. This approach helps researchers learn how to design better drugs, combat alcoholism and understand how certain diseases occur.

Lindahl mentions they started using CUDA in their work nearly five years ago and now 90% of their computational resources are GPUs. “It’s everything we do.”

    Are you aware of the BOINC projects that allow volunteers to donate time on the GPUs that are already in their computers (often for computer games) to help protein research? For example:


    This one requires fairly high-end Nvidia GPUs.
