WISDOM interface for easy grid-powered disease research

The WISDOM project has been doing great work on grid-powered anti-malaria drug discovery. Now, thanks to a new interface, it's even easier for biologists to access the power of computer grids. The system works by allowing biologists to select a series of "ligand" molecules and simulate their ability to "dock" with disease proteins. Presented by Jean Salzemann of CNRS IN2P3.
