Pats on the Back:

-Congratulations to Wei Feinstein and Michal Brylinski who were invited to contribute a chapter to a book “High Performance Parallelism Pearls Volume Two” (Morgan Kaufmann, 2015). The book is edited by James Reinders and Jim Jeffers, who are leading experts on parallel computing at Intel. This publication comprises a second collection of success stories leveraging parallelism in heterogeneous computing systems. Chapter 5 by Feinstein and Brylinski entitled “Accelerated Structural Bioinformatics for Drug Discovery” describes porting of their code for the prediction of drug binding sites in proteins to the Intel Xeon Phi architecture.
