Doug,
I have read some papers about the use of genetic algorithms in searching 
the conformation space of protein structure.  These involve the work of 
Carlos Lucasius and Gerrit Kateman at the University of Nijmegen, the 
Netherlands.  Although they do not mention any specialized hardware, this 
seems (to a naive chemist) to be a suitable problem for it.  Let me know 
if this is of any use to you.  Carlos is taking a postdoc position in our 
lab this fall, I imagine he would be interested in your work.
