SimVirus

My opinion of biology as a science tends to be pretty low. Not that it is a bad thing, or not to be respected, it just seems that the application end of it is still in its early days. Biology is such an incredibly complex subject that it makes weather seem totally solvable by comparison. Thus news of an atom-by-atom simulation of a virus tends to look like a really promising early step into a new world.

This is also a reason the demand for high end computers to get more powerful won't go away any time soon.
