Using GPUs to Supercharge Visualization and Analysis of Molecular Dynamics Simulations with VMD
Abstract:

VMD is a tool for preparing, analyzing, and visualizing molecular dynamics simulations, with particular emphasis on large biomolecular systems, including drug targets such as the bacterial ribosome, and large viruses such as HIV.The computational challenges posed by large simulations present a significant hurdle for simulation and analysis tools. GPUs provide unprecedented computational capabilities at a very low cost, making it possible for applications like VMD to accelerate tasks that would otherwise be beyond our grasp. The ubiquitous nature of powerful GPUs on hardware ranging from tablets to supercomputers has allowed us to make a significant investment in developing GPU algorithms for a broad range of uses covering everything from ion placement during simulation preparation to photorealistic ray tracing of movies on hundreds of supercomputer nodes.Join us for this webinar as John Stone, Senior Research Programmer, University of Illinois provides an overview of the GPU-accelerated features of VMD and how they can be used to speed up a wide range of simulation preparation, analysis, and visualization tasks today, along with a roadmap of things to come in the future.
