Webinar: Learn about OpenMM, the code driving FAH GPUs

For those that are curious about OpenMM, the code that drives the GPU calculations in FAH, please join us on January 16th for a webinar presented by Professor Vijay Pande.  I’ll talk about about OpenMM, the computational engine behind the Folding@Home distributed computing system, and hear how others have leveraged its high-performance on GPUs and its custom classes and extreme flexibility to accelerate research in areas such as free energy calculations, protein folding, and protein conformational change.

This webinar is planned for January 16th 2014 at 9.00 AM Pacific Time. Space is limited, so please register at http://bit.ly/OpenMM
