Special Information

birgHPCC (Bioinformatic Research Group High Performance CUDA Computing) is a free Linux Live DVD distribution based on PelicanHPC and birgHPC.

birgHPCC is capable of creating and configuring a compute unified device architecture (CUDA) computing cluster, hence the extra “C” in the name.

In addition to the increase in image size (less than 2 gigabytes) and a new Linux base (previously Debian, now Ubuntu), CUDA-capable bioinformatics software programs, such as NAMD, HOOMD-blue, VMD, GPU-HMMER and GPU-BLAST, are pre-installed in birgHPCC, along with the CUDA driver, libraries and software development kit (SDK).

In short, birgHPCC is the world's first CUDA-ready, bioinformatics-based, live DVD.
