Two of the most potent supercomputers in France, Joliot-Curie, operated at the CEA’s supercomputing centre (TGCC), and Occigen, operated at CPU’s supercomputing centre (CINES), are delivering urgent computing access to huge computer system methods to European research teams associated in the battle towards COVID-19. The goal is to conduct epidemiological scientific tests of COVID-19 virus spread, have an understanding of its molecular composition and behavior and massively screen and exam possible potential molecules, to speed up the look for for an helpful vaccine and assistance the worldwide battle towards the virus. Equally supercomputers are based mostly on Atos’ BullSequana system, worldwide leader in electronic transformation.

Following only a couple months of GENCI’s COVID 19 rapidly keep track of access, GENCI, the French national superior-effectiveness computing agency, announces that there are now a lot more than twenty scientifically assorted COVID19 assignments, managing on its 3 national supercomputers
