NIMBioS Teams With Nautilus

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) will begin analyzing and visualizing massive amounts of data this fall using Nautilus, the world’s largest shared-memory computer.
The project is a part of NIMBioS’s collaboration with the Center for Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) , which houses the supercomputer. The University of Tennessee (UT) recently received a $10 million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish RDAV.
“NIMBioS and RDAV have already initiated new collaborations to enhance the use of visualization for large datasets arising from field observations and from mathematical model results. Our objective is to increase the ability of biologists to interpret and analyze complex, multivariate data to address fundamental and applied questions in the life sciences,” said Louis Gross, NIMBioS Director and Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Mathematics at the University of Tennessee.
