Army biomedical center prepares new servers for cancer research

The Advanced Biomedical Computing Center at the Army's Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md., has purchased four SGI servers and a storage system to support the work of its biomedical researchers.

Scientists at the center, run by the National Cancer Institute, will use an SGI Origin 3800 server and three Origin 300 servers to study the structure-function relationships of biological molecules, and to develop medicines to treat AIDS and cancer.

ABCC also models anticancer drug interactions with tumors, analyzes genomic data and studies how DNA-protein interactions are involved in cancer.
