LHC Grid Fest : Virtual Tour : WISDOM

Virtual Tour : WISDOM

WISDOM (Wide In Silico Docking On Malaria) is the first biomedical data challenge for drug discovery, and demonstrated how grid computing can help drug discovery research by speeding up process. The challenge saw over 46 million docked ligands during that period – the equivalent of 80 years on a single PC. This type of scientific challenge would not be possible without the grid infrastructure - 1000 computers were simultaneously used in 15 countries around the world.
