On the risk of going completely offtopic, does anybody know more on
this _very_ intersting article ?

In it Heshan Lin, Xiaosong Ma, Praveen Chandramohan, Al Geist, and
Nagiza Samatova of NCSU & ORNL describe their way of making mpiBLAST a
lot faster.

No code available yet I think, but it would be nice to know whether
people think this research has any change to get integrated into
