by University at Buffalo faculty and consortium Members. Projects will be selected for
support by decision of the Management Committee, in part, based on the ability of the
proposed work to address the following specific objectives:
To develop new applications for data intensive computing in the life sciences,
pharmaceutical research, and development and engineering.
To develop new algorithms and programming methods for data intensive computing
To optimize the performance of existing algorithms for data intensive computing
To integrate heterogeneous high performance computing platforms for complex problems.
To develop user-friendly software tools for the life sciences, and pharmaceutical
research and development.
