OpenMP is the de-facto standard for shared memory parallel programming. It has been widely accepted in academia and industry for multithreaded applications in the field of High Performance Computing.
High-throughput sequencing has revolutionized the way we understand biology. With state-of-the-art technologies one can nowadays re-sequence a human genome for less than 1,000$. However, key technical problems are still present. First, with current technologies one cannot sequence a long DNA molecule as a whole, but rather only read it out as many relatively short chunks; as a result, data analysis becomes complicated.
Elmer is an open source finite element software suite particularly well suited for the study of multiphysical problems. In Elmer each physical model is a dynamically linked solver and there is no upper limit to the number of different solvers. Elmer includes at least basic models for many branches of computational engineering, e.g. fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, heat transfer, electromagnetics, acoustics. Elmer has been parallized with MPI and has demonstrated good scalability up to thousands of cores.
