Paris, June seventeen, 2020
Atos, a world leader in electronic transformation, today announces that the College of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (URCA)’s supercomputer, named ROMEO, is now staying utilised to look for for new molecules able of neutralizing the virus that leads to COVID-19. The supercomputer is based on Atos’ BullSequana architecture.
ROMEO is staying utilised as element of the HT-Covid application, initiated by Reims Molecular Chemistry Institute (ICMR), joint analysis unit URCA/CNRS, and chosen by the French Nationwide Exploration Company (ANR) to take part in the combat from Covid-19. Established up in just just one week, this massive-scale multi-disciplinary virtual screening task aims to determine, more than the future eighteen months, molecules that could inhibit the SARS CoV-2 virus.
ROMEO’s computing energy enables scientists working on this task to check countless numbers of molecules for each day. Based mostly on the 3D construction of the molecule and the goal protein, ROMEO
