Sydney: A supercomputer commissioned by the University of Sydney is helping to investigate the secrets of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa.
Called Artemis, the Dell computer is helping researchers in molecular biology, economics, mechanical engineering and physical oceanography and offers powerful analysis of research data.
The university and Dell Australia announced its launch on Wednesday, Xinhua reported citing an Australian Broadcasting Corporation report.
The supercomputer is not basic. It has 1,512 cores of compute capacity, almost 10 Terabytes of fast DDR4 memory, 10 Nvidia Tesla K40 graphics units and 480 Terabytes of Lustre file storage.
The university said that the high performance computer (HPC) was available at no cost to the university’s researchers across all disciplines.
National Health and Medical Research Council Australia fellow, professor Edward Holmes, from the university’s Charles Perkins Centre, said that he was harnessing Artemis to trace the spread of Ebola in west Africa. By sequencing the virus’s genetic code, the university could discover how Ebola changed and adapted as it spread. (IANS)

Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a sight in your life,
As three blind mice (Modern version of the rhyme, Wikipedia)
