Computational Science Research Program
Integrated Simulation of Living Matter Group
Next-Generation Integrated Simulation of Living Matter started in 2006, and evolved application programs that can attain peta-flop class execution efficiency by using "K computer", a peta-scale computer, with the core mission of "developing software that can contribute to medical care with an analytical approach to basic equations, an approach to extract experimental data that looms in on unknown theorems using massive amounts of experimental data, and an approach to integrate multiple levels to fully utilize the performance of a supercomputer having an unprecedented peta-scale performance. This will make it possible to integrate and organically link research and experimental data of varying scale, and to understand the highly varied phenomena of the biological body." Throughout its research, the data and findings collected during development have been released to academic conferences and journals, and a symposium was convened to freely exchange views.
Experimental use of "K computer", a peta-scale computer, started from fiscal year 2011, and some programs under development have achieved an execution efficiency of peta-flop class. From now on, we would like many people to become familiar with these new application programs, and to use them. Please take time to look at our web page that showcases individual programs (see diagram).
This page introduces all application programs that are currently under development. As an effort to give back the project's accomplishments to the society, we are planning to gradually release their source code. It is also planned to increase the content of the download page so that the public can use actual programs.
A status report of the research and development of these application programs will be released at the "Debrief Meeting 2011 on Next-Generation Integrated Simulation of Living Matter (ISLiM)" (December 21 (Wed) – 22 (Thurs) 2011). Please feel free to attend if you are interested.
