Sneak can be just as childish as anybody and thinks that wherever you may be, sometimes an image in your mind can spark off a rictus-inducing grin at anytime. IBM has just updated its Blue Gene supercomputer – to the /P (slash pee) variant, but say that this beast can not only model drug interactions, it can model an entire human organ to check out drug interactions.
Unfortunately Viagra, originally called Sildenafil and discovered in the UK, was not discovered by modeling the male member, but by being tested for it ability to lower blood pressure and also for its ability to open up coronary arteries and ease angina. Of course coronary arteries weren’t the only ones that were opened up and for some men erectile dysfunction (ED) became a thing of the past. With the new computer scientists can now model even better drugs to lessen the effects of ED for people who have a telegram from the Queen.
IBM also say that “A variety of independent software vendors have plans to port existing tools to Blue Gene/P.” Oooh-err missis, how many terror flops would that be?
