According to the press release, technologies used by supercomputers can provide effective alternative solutions for issues like curing diseases.
"For many diseases, proteins have been identified that are responsible for the development of pathologies ... And if we stop such a protein using a molecule that selectively binds to it in its active centre, then the development of the disease will stop", Vladimir Sulimov, the head of a laboratory in MSU, said, as quoted in a press release.
The Lomonosov supercomputer was installed at MSU in 2009. The supercomputer has a unique system with the highest performance range.
