Abstract:
For Charles Darwin, the HMS Beagle was the ship for the historic voyage in 1831 that inspired his later work on the origin of species. For the University of Chicago, "Beagle" is an 18,000-core Cray XE6 supercomputer that is one of the most powerful supercomputers dedicated to biomedical research. Since its launch in early 2011, Beagle has supported over 80 research projects, more than 300 users and has resulted in over 30 publications.

Tuesday, April 23, 2013, a "Day of the Beagle" symposium will discuss the innovative research made possible to date by Beagle, with speakers representing the fields of genomics, neurobiology, molecular biology and medicine.
