Ever played with the "game of life"? Well, here's an example of the real thing: HPC used to study evolution and cellular dynamics. Bioinformatics is an interesting - if unusual - field of application. Computation and visualization go hand in hand, as one is required to make sense of the other. In this video you'll see examples of using WPF to display results computed by CCS v1 and v2. This is also one of the first examples of use of MPI.NET, a managed-code implementation of the message-passing libraries.
