Curing Viruses With 3D Computer Simulations

Whether it’s Polio or HIV, there are millions of people infected across the world, and it seems as if it is a race against time, given the fast replication of viruses. Fortunately we have a new weapon in our armory to help us fight this war- the Supercomputers!

Scientists can now leverage  the power of hundreds of  processors simultaneously in real time to comprehend how the viruses replicate and interact with cells or to design new ways of combating with viruses targeting the weak spots etc.

Here’s a nice video that focuses on the power of simulations and modeling of viruses via supercomputers. Hope you enjoy watching it!
