NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, September 2010 (GTC 2010) - Day 2 Keynote with Dr. Klaus Schulten, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

How does the H1N1 "Swine Flu" virus avoid drugs while attacking our cells? What can we learn about solar energy by studying biological photosynthesis? How do our cells read the genetic code? What comes next in computational biology? Computational biology is approaching a new and exciting frontier: the ability to simulate structures and processes in living cells. Come learn about the "computational microscope," a new research instrument that scientists can use to simulate biomolecules at nearly infinite resolution. The computational microscope complements the most advanced physical microscopes to guide today's biomedical research. In this keynote address, computational biology pioneer Dr. Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, will introduce the computational microscope, showcase the widely used software underlying it, and highlight major discoveries made with the aid of the computational microscope ranging from viewing protein folding, translating the genetic code in cells, and harvesting solar energy in photosynthesis. He will also look towards a future when cell tomography and computing will establish atom-by-atom views of entire life forms.
