ng diseases affecting the lives of Australians and people worldwide," he said.

"This is an extraordinary asset to the life scientists of Victoria and Australia."

Glenn Wightwick, Director, IBM Research and Development Australia, said: "Completing computationally intensive projects is critical in achieving new breakthroughs in the understanding of human disease and translating that knowledge into improved medical care."

"IBM's historic role in developing the supercomputers that provide the power behind critical applications in every industry, including life sciences, has uniquely positioned us to provide reliable supercomputing at the highest level."

Professor Peter Taylor, Director of VLSCI, said the new high performance computer was designed specifically for large-scale and highly complex scientific problems.

"This immense computing power will add tremendous value to the huge data sets currently generated by the Victorian biotechnology hub," he said.
