Quote from: valterc (TN-GRID Project Admin)
The grant will give us access, for one year, to two AMD computational nodes, each one equipped with a AMD Epyc "Rome" and 8 AMD Radeon Instinct™ MI50 Accelerators.

Quote from: Professor Enrico Blanzieri (University of Trento)
The computational resources that AMD is providing will be inserted in our on-going gene@home project that aims to discover the causal relationships between the expression of genes. In particular, we plan to speed-up specific inquiries about genes interacting with SARS-CoV-2 in collaboration with the medical researchers and students in the Laboratory of Biological Data Mining.

There is some more discussion about it on the TN-GRID message boards here ...
