                      COMPUTING SEMINAR

  PARALLEL COMPUTING APPLIED TO SEQUENCE COMPARISON AND DATABASE SEARCHING

                 11.00 am on Wednesday 25 November 1992
                      at the Resource Centre

                       Dr. John Collins
                     Edinburgh University

As our knowledge of nucleic acid and protein sequences increases the
problem of discovering related sequences becomes more difficult. One
solution to this problem is the use of parallel computing. The
Edinburgh group of Dr. John Collins and Dr. Andrew Coulson has an HGMP
grant to investigate the use of parallel computing in human genome
analysis. Dr. Collins will describe the results of this work including
the new programs which are being made available on the HGMP on line
service. The hardware used is the AMT Distributed Array Processor
located at the Resource Centre and also a newer machine called the
MasPar which is on loan at the Resource Centre during October and
November.

The seminar is aimed at the users of molecular biology software not at
computing experts. If you have problems which might benefit from
increased computing power you are welcome to come along to discuss
these. Demonstrations of the software will be mounted in the teaching
laboratory and a buffet lunch will be provided.
