SC08: Day 1, mpi-HMMer and its GPU port are generating excitement

We have spoken to a whole bunch of people about mpiHMMer and the incredible work JP has done on it. For those who don’t know, mpiHMMer is an MPI implementation of the HMMer code base.

JP is working on getting it into the nVidia booth/machines, and will run a few demos tomorrow for people. Let me know if you would like to see it. If you are not sure why it is interesting, consider that it has a multiple GPU version that JP benchmarked at more than 100x performance gain.
